My name is Trachelle C. Young, and I'm running for Genesee County Prosecutor in 2020.
My family and I have resided in Genesee County for over 20 years. All three of my children are graduates of the Genesee County School System.
I have been practicing law in the County for 15 years, having early involvement in fighting those responsible for the Flint Water Crisis. I have over 23 years of legal experience, including five years in the US Army Judge Advocate General Corp. (JAGC), two years as a Genesee County Assistant Prosecuting Attorney, five years as the Flint City Attorney and 11 years as a Defense Attorney.
I am a very proud Veteran and thankful for the opportunity I had to serve my country.
I PASSIONATELY BELIEVE IN
Through the use of a broad-based mentorship program across Genesee County, Trachelle C. Young hopes to get to the root causes of crime before they occur, pairing community leaders with youth so they can learn by example and create positive ways to influence their neighborhoods.
Trachelle C. Young believes in instituting restorative justice in Genesee County – an innovative approach in which one of the responses to a crime is to organize a meeting between the victim and the offender, in order to share their experiences of what happened, to discuss who was harmed by the crime and how, and to create a consensus for what the offender can do to repair the harm from the offense.
Genesee County needs a long-term, proactive partnership with its prosecutor's office, law enforcement, the community and public and private organizations, so the authority of the prosecutor's office is used to solve problems, improve public safety and enhance the quality of life of community members.
“Tough on crime” responses to youth crime and misbehavior have led to more young people languishing in jail, wasting potentially the best years of their lives behind bars. When elected Genesee County Prosecutor, Trachelle C. Young will develop opportunities for treatment, rehabilitation, and positive reinforcement, creating community alternatives to jail and prison, significantly reduced the number of children behind bars.
