Sunnyside City Manager Unsure About Hitchcock's Future

Posted: Updated:

SUNNYSIDE, Wash.-- The city of Sunnyside is reviewing the contract of the city prosecutor after she was charged with a DUI

Kathleen Hitchcock has been suspended and is on a month-to-month contract with the city.

State troopers arrested Hitchcock for a DUI Tuesday morning.

The interim city manager of Sunnyside said he is not sure what the future holds for Hitchcock.

"Until we have actually seen the charges, it's hard for me to say that, but I do see we have suspended her, and one of the options is to terminate her contract," said Sunnyside Interim City Manager, John Darrington.

Sunnyside is calling in other prosecutors in Yakima County to take over Hitchcock's cases because there were several pending cases the day after the arrest.
