Wayne Graham. I have been with the Thurston County Prosecutor’s Office for more than 19 years and am currently a senior deputy in our general felony division. I have represented the state in all types of criminal prosecutions within the office from homicides, vehicular felonies, victim based crimes, juvenile offenses, misdemeanors and infractions.
I have served as a past board member for the Thurston County Bar Association and am currently the co-chair of our criminal division coordinating communication between the Bench and the local Bar.
Thomas A. McBride (Tom). I was born and raised in Spokane, Washington. I attended Washington State University for undergraduate and the University of Washington School of Law. Between schools, I worked as an accountant and passed the Certified Public Accountant exam.
After graduating from law school in 1990, I worked at the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. I then spent 25 years as the Executive Director of the Washington Association of Prosecuting Attorneys. My most frequent contact with the WSBA was as an approved provider of CLE credits. In 2019, I am taking a short sabbatical before returning to the workplace.
