MOUNT VERNON — As a bailiff for the Knox County Common Pleas Court, David Lashley has been a part of nearly every type of trial imaginable; he also aides as vital role in the judiciary process in our county by maintaining courtroom security.
“I sit in every hearing, practically: Divorce, disillusions, civil suits, criminal cases,” Lashley said. “I hear (everything).”
Lashley’s journey to becoming a Knox County bailiff began 17 years ago. While he was working as a probation officer in a juvenile court, a bailiff position became available, and he wasted no time to jump at the opportunity.
