Dearstyne has county's best interest in mind
What side am I on?
As far as the county attorney's position, I would like to voice my opinion.
I have only once had the opportunity to see both Don Dearstyne and Nathaniel Welte in action at the same time. Don was prosecuting a criminal and Nathaniel was defending him.
The reason for my involvement is that the defendant had previously worked for me and been caught stealing, not only from me but from a customer.
Don was vigilant about having justice served, and only because of some slippery maneuvers Nathaniel's client was able to elude proper sentencing.
Don and his assistant Erika Randall and the entire staff are very well qualified and determined to serve the best interest of the county and the law.
