Conference: Matthew Mangino, Lawrence County district attorney, was one of two Pennsylvania prosecutors awarded a scholarship to the National District Attorneys Association weeklong conference on the press and law in South Carolina.
The conference was the first of its kind, designed to provide prosecutors with a better understanding of the ethical issues and community relations involved in dealing with the press.
Only 165 prosecutors from across the country were invited to attend the conference, which was the week of Sept. 10. Deidra M. Eshlemen of Lebanon County was the only other Pennsylvania prosecutor invited to attend.
