prosecutor a reminder of risks The attack on a Prince George prosecutor Thursday is a vivid reminder for all courthouse staff the front lines of justice can be a dangerous place, said a Kamloops Crown lawyer.
Stephen Lawhead said all in the Kamloops Crown office were shocked to hear about the attack on one of their colleagues. Some here have worked with the injured Prince George lawyer in the past. The attack, and the initial lack of information about how or why it happened, caused alarm, Lawhead said. The office here did not know how bad the attack was or what it happened. The unidentified Crown prosecutor was beaten bloody as he was heading to work at the Prince George courthouse. Court sheriffs quickly subdued the alleged attacker even before RCMP arrived. Const. Lesley Smith, a spokeswoman for the Prince George RCMP, did not identify the 40 year old suspect or the victim but said the prosecutor was punched in the face and suffered non life threatening injuries. He was taken to louis vuitton samsung galaxy s3 case amazon hospital. The incident started before hearings began for the day when a man was spotted wandering the halls, said a court worker. "He was going crazy," said Kelly Penner, who had recently arrived for work at the court. "He was calling everyone names in the courthouse and yelling profanities and then walked out of the courthouse and he happened to meet (the Crown) across the street." The suspect is in custody and faces several charges, including aggravated assault. Thursday, and witnesses advised police that a man was being violent towards staff members but had left the area. Ten minutes later, police received another call about an attack on the front steps of the courthouse, where sheriffs had a man in custody, said Smith. She did not know why the suspect was at the courthouse. Crown counsel spokesman Neil how to spot a fake louis vuitton alma vernis MacKenzie said it appeared the assault may have occurred during an incidental encounter outside the courthouse. "There's some indication the suspect may have recognized the prosecutor involved, but right now we can't say definitively whether or not the prosecutor was assaulted because of who he is or his occupation," MacKenzie said. Lawhead said security is an issue for all who work in the justice system, from lawyers and louis vuitton outlet store atlanta ga judges to police, and court registry staff. Those who are charged with offences are often upset or angry or suffer mental illness can pose risks to those who deal with them. Custodial staff were forced to call the police. The man was apparently upset about his treatment at the hands of probation officials. Friesenger was jailed 60 days Thursday for mischief and breach. Lawhead said lawyers often work at the courthouse after hours or on weekends. He said he always watches carefully when entering the courthouse on weekends, to ensure the building is secure. Overall, Lawhead said there is enough security in and around the courthouse to protect those who deliver justice. Camera systems watch the corridors, the Crown offices are locked and sheriffs keep an eye in courtrooms. "Everyone who works in the courthouse... deals with upset public. It's something we do talk about and when incidents happen, there are people we can get advice from." Lawhead said louis vuitton outlet store atlanta ga most courthouse staff take precautions with personal security outside the workplace as well. "We deal with people who are under stress. Everyone who works in the system recognizes you do have to be a little bit careful," he said.
