  • A Wyandotte County prosecutor says he is driven to fight for justice by pain he endures after he was hit by a drunken driver.
    Christopher Mann was a Lawrence police officer when a drunken driver slammed into him during a traffic stop in January 2002.
    The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/YPBumT ) a leg injury ended his police career. Despite continuing pain from the injury, he went on to earn a law degree at Washburn University and became an assistant district attorney in Wyandotte County in 2011.
    Mann also has advocated for tougher laws to fight drunken driving. And he recruited and became a volunteer for Mothers Against Drunk Driving. He organized a new state advisory board and is now state chairman for MADD Kansas.
