Craig Adams, legal adviser for the past 20 years to the Pierce County Sheriff’s Department, has been appointed a Superior Court commissioner.

Adams will be sworn in Monday during a private ceremony. He was a court commissioner earlier in his career that includes work in private practice and as a state assistant attorney general.

Adams will fill the vacancy created last year when Gov. Chris Gregoire appointed Commissioner Patrick Oishi as a King County Superior Court judge.

Pierce County Superior Court judges also voted to make one other change, approving Commissioner Meagan Foley’s shift from civil to criminal cases.

Pierce County’s eight Superior Court commissioners preside over a variety of legal proceedings, enabling judges to handle more trials.

    This is not a surprise to a few who have worked in local law enforcement.

    This appears to be a ‘quick pro qou’ for a career that included cases such as the cover up involving Brian Eggleston and Sheriff Mark French.

    Pierce County Law Enforcement was aware of French’s criminal activity and only charged him after he was implicated in a Dallis internet child porn case. The punishment for downloading over a hundred photo’s of child porn. Thirty days of electronic home monitoring and a Superior Court Judge who ruled his activity had “no sexual motivation.”

    Ten years later, French’s, criminal case was expunged and Adams receives this appointment. Not much of a surprise to some.

  2. Well, twenty years of trying with a leaking ship you
    might as well do something or other…else.

    And why did the prosecutor’s office who has a pattern of not protecting women, children the elderly accept this expunging of Sheriff French’s kiddy pron record or recommend 30 days on his yacht!!!! Hello?

    This is a real sick town. It is like when a cop stated it is the “Blue Velvet” capitol of creepo’s, sickos, and corruption by people who need serious psychology treatment.
