How do felony property cases, such as burglary, move through the Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office? Adam Cornell, Snohomish County Prosecuting Attorney and an Edmonds resident, will discuss that topic during a community meeting — “Prosecuting Burglaries and Other Felony Property Offenses: From Arrest to Sentencing” — in the Plaza Room above the Edmonds Library on Wednesday, May 8.
The Snohomish County Prosecutor’s Office is tasked with prosecuting all felony crimes committed throughout Snohomish County. There will be discussion about when and why prosecutors are allowed to ask to hold someone in jail before trial, how the prosecutor’s office interacts with victims, witnesses and different police agencies, and what types of sentences are authorized under law in property cases such as burglary.
A question-and-answer period will follow the formal presentation, which begins at 7 p.m. The Edmonds Library is located at 650 Main St.
