Sunnyside court falls behind after prosecutor arrested

Sunnyside court falls behind after prosecutor arrested
SUNNYSIDE, Wash. -- The municipal court says it's falling behind schedule after last week's arrest of the city prosecutor on suspicion of drunken driving.

Judge Kathleen Hitchcock has been suspended ever since the arrest.

Court officials say they've had to postpone six trials without her so far and there could be more.

Sunnyside re-assigned some of the cases, but it's not clear when they'll go to court.
