Victoria Burton-Harris

For Wayne County Prosecuting Attorney

Under current Prosecuting Attorney Kym Worthy’s leadership, Wayne County sentenced more children to life in prison than any other county in the state.

Black people, who made up 39% of Wayne County’s population in 2016, accounted for over 90% of individuals serving juvenile life sentences in the county.

Victoria Burton-Harris is a longtime civil rights advocate and defense attorney committed to treating children like children. She will end the practice of sending kids to prison for life without parole, address mental issues, and insist on reviewing cases of youth currently serving life sentences. Burton-Harris would bring the change Wayne County deserves.

As Prosecuting Attorney, Burton-Harris will also:

  • End the use of money bail
  • Stop the practice of sending children to prison for life without parole
  • Expand pretrial diversion and intervention programs
  • Hold powerful people and corporations accountable to our communities
