STATE'S ATTORNEY

Term: 4 Years

Salary: $75,000

QUESTION: What is the most important problem facing the criminal justice system and how will you address it?

Alexander Williams Jr. (D)

Arthur A. Bud Marshall (R)

9820 Rosaryville Rd., Upper Marlboro

Age: 60

State's attorney, Prince George's County, 1963-87; member, Board of Review, Patuxent Institution; member, Korean War Memorial Commission; former vice president, National District Attorneys Association; past president, Maryland State's Attorneys Association; former director, Center for Local Prosecution of Drug Offenses; former member, Governor's Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Justice; chairman, Heart Fund Campaign; distinguished service award, National District Attorneys Association; Citizen of the Year, Veteran of Foreign Wars; U.S. Army, Infantry, 1951-53, (Korea); wounded in combat; lawyer, Georgetown University; married, seven children.

A: Leadership or the lack thereof. In only three years, we have seen violent crime increase almost 150 percent, a 200 percent increase in drug use and abuse, and by year's end, homicides will have almost tripled. There are no simple solutions to these problems, however, the state's attorney, who is the county's chief law enforcement officer, must be held responsible and accountable for this lack of leadership. He must be willing to devote all of his energies and his abilities both in and out of the courthouse in providing the necessary leadership to wage and win the war against drugs and violence, which are destroying the fabric of our society. The courts, police, corrections, parole and probation agencies, as well as their support components, must have a person who can provide leadership. We have been successful in the past, and with proper leadership, we will be able to bring the system together again.

Age: 42

Incumbent

A: The most important problem facing the criminal justice system is the escalation in crimes, which is a direct result of drug distribution activities. These activities create substantial, uncontrollable pressures on the financial resources of governments. Thus, the main challenge facing the criminal justice system is how do we curtail drug activities and related crimes with the limited resources available, especially in light of recent economic downturns. Despite adverse economic pressures, the allocation of financial resources to law enforcement must be sufficient to ensure high quality investigations and prosecution of crimes, adequate correction facilities and drug prevention programs. All elected officials must see themselves as part of this challenge. As state's attorney, I can lead by: continuing to establish policies in my administration that consistently address aggressive use of mandatory sentences; seizures of assets obtained with drug proceeds; aggressively using life-without-parole and the death penalty statutes; and provide the leadership to minimize the differences between the community and the police department.
