Brian has been an attorney for almost thirty years. In 2004, Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy appointed him as the Deputy Chief of the Juvenile Division of the Prosecutor’s Office, a position that he has held since that time. In that position, his responsibilities include supervising fifteen assistant prosecutors, making charging decisions on juvenile cases (particularly the most serious felony cases), negotiating plea agreements, trying cases before judges and juries, and administering a division of the Prosecutor’s Office which sees approximately three to five thousand new cases every year.
As the Deputy Chief, he initiated a juvenile diversion program in Wayne County called “Teen Court,” which allows certain juvenile offenders who have committed relatively minor, first-time offenses (such as shoplifting), to avoid having a juvenile record if they comply with the terms of the program. The program, which is currently operating in seven high schools in the Detroit Public School system, is unique in that it allows a “jury” of teenagers to hear actual juvenile cases and, based upon the evidence that they elicit, design appropriate sentences for the juvenile offender. The program not only gives a second chance to juveniles who have made a poor decision, but it also gives the teenager jurors the opportunity for public service and a hands-on education in civic responsibility.
