Monroe County DA calls use of criminal courts, “morally inappropriate and legally suspect”

Stroudsburg, PA

Monroe County District Attorney E. David Christine, Jr says he has notified every police agency and District Court  in Monroe County he questions the Governor Tom Wolf’s Orders. Saying the Governor’s Orders are, “morally inappropriate and legally suspect.”

Christine says, “The personal calculus employed by every citizen in deciding how to best protect their families from both the pandemic and financial ruin should not include fear of criminal prosecution. That will not happen so long as I sit as District Attorney of Monroe County.
