YAKIMA, WA - There's a second candidate in the race for Yakima County Prosecutor.

Troy Clements announced Friday he's joining the race.

Clements founded the Prosecutor's Office Gang Unit. He's been supervising for the past five years.

Clements said he's not afraid to take on tough cases and prosecute some of Yakima's most violent criminals.

"These are the most complex cases," said Clements. "Some of the most difficult cases from a law enforcement perspective. So if you can successfully try those types of cases, you can virtually try any case in the prosecutor's office."

Joe Brusic, a local attorney, is the only other person in the race so far.

Current County Prosecutor Jim Hagarty announced last month that he will not seek re-election.
