June 21, 2013 – Hanis Irvine Prothero partner Mark Prothero joined a group of criminal justice professionals in presenting at the 3rd Annual Boy Scout Law Merit Badge event. The day-long event was held at the Maleng Regional Justice Center and Kent Commons. Boy Scouts from throughout the area heard from a broad spectrum of people involved in all aspects of the United States criminal justice system to help earn their merit badges. Other presenters included Kent Police officers, court administrators, investigators, attorneys John Casey, Kevin Jussell, Steven Weier, and King County Senior Deputy Prosecuting Attorney Rich Anderson. The boy scouts also heard from several King County Superior Court judges, including Brian Gain, LeRoy McCullough, James Cayce, Andrea Darvas, Carol Shapira, Suzanne Parisien, and Bill Bowman. Mark’s presentation was entitled “Criminal Justice: Defending the Accused” examining our constitutional rights from the perspective of a defense lawyer. The event was organized by attorney Jennifer Rydberg, who said it was “…the third and best law merit badge event, a whopping success.”
