Merriam Hires New Prosecutor

Chris Mann

Merriam City Council yesterday approved hiring Christopher Mann as the City’s new part-time prosecuting attorney.

Mann will handle all traffic and city ordinance violations in the Merriam Municipal Court and will represent the City on cases appealed to the Johnson County District Court.

“I’m excited to be a part of the City of Merriam team,” Mann said. “I’ve always enjoyed serving my community and look forward to helping make sure that a fair and honest court system helps create a safe and enjoyable city.”

In addition to serving as Merriam’s city prosecutor, Mann works as a part-time prosecutor for Gardner Municipal Court and he owns his own practice in Lenexa. Mann’s also the Mothers Against Drunk Driving National Board of Directors chair and is on the Kansas Sentencing Commission.

Prior to serving in his current positions, Mann acted as the Wyandotte County prosecutor and worked at the Kansas Securities Commission’s Office.

Mann received his law degree from Washburn Law School in 2007. He was a police officer with the Lawrence Police Department from 1998-2004 before an injury ended his career.

Mann is married and has a three-year-old daughter.
