Michael was elected Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney in 2014 by an overwhelming majority of nearly 62%. Under Michael's leadership the office successfully resolved the Pierce double homicide case. Michael has infused the office with new blood and significantly increased both the level of experience and quality of the attorneys. Michael has shifted the focus of criminal prosecutions to evidence based treatment modalities. Unfortunately, treatment an option for every offender and Michael's office takes a hard line on violent offenders, especially those who prey on children as is reflected on the recent Net Nanny arrests.
