Sharon was next chosen as a trial attorney for Sex Charges on the Special Victim’s Unit – Adult and Child Sexual Assault Prosecution.
In 2005, Sharon Fields relocated to Washington state where she was appointed as a Senior Deputy (Felony) Prosecuting Attorney in the Whatcom County Prosecutor’s Attorney’s Office in Bellingham, Washington. As a defense attorney and prosecutor, she has managed hundreds of felony cases including cases of homicide, rape, child sexual molestation, and aggravated assault and thousands of misdemeanor and juvenile cases over the years.
