Newell says the trick in dealing with that is the collaborative work that needs to go on between the Probation Department, law enforcement agencies, Health and Human Services, treatment providers, non profit partners and the District Attorney’s office.

Newell concedes he has never tried a capital murder case but he says the job of district attorney is not that of a trial lawyer anymore. It’s more like running a business.

Newell was first elected District Attorney in 2006 and was unopposed in 2012. This year  Newell is facing one challenger, attorney David Alkire, in the race for District Attorney.
