I was a prosecutor in Upper Marlboro for around eight years, several of which were in Juvenile. I didn’t do adult truancy much - the Juvenile Chief handled them, primarily - but I handled some of them when she needed help. My time in Juvenile was the saddest in my career, watching these young people who desperately Read more

If there’s anything I’ve learned from working in politics and government for the past 20 years, it’s that zero tolerance policies rarely exist in everyday work life.
