Crime fighting fish, Pippin.


By Intern Ashley Lewis

A couple of weeks ago you probably saw a video of our own Victim’s Advocate, Chase Barnett, with our crime fighting fish, Pippin. Today, I got a closer look into Pippin’s story. A few months ago, Chase decided to bring her fish because she knew that he was a special fish with a unique personality. Since his arrival, Pippin has been the star of the office to the children that come in. He helps take their minds off of why they typically have to come to the DA’s office, and allows them for if just a moment to be the innocent beings that they are. Because of his unique look and dashing personality, Pippin has surely stolen the hearts of the children and of everyone in our office. Hopefully one day, we might be able to talk the DA into letting us have a dog

Check out our intern, Ashley’s upcoming article on our Crime Fighting Fish Pippin!
