"Cover Story" piece on District Attorney (DA) David Crook who has served Kennebec and Somerset counties in his present capacity for 22 years. He was elected in 1978 unopposed and has faced only two challengers since then. But Crook has a reputation for being a tyrant and when those who know him are asked to comment, few are neutral. With special focus on lawsuits brought against Crook by Mark Russell, a former Kennebec County treasurer, and Annalee Bloom, a former assistant district attorney in Crook's office. Also with pointed comments by Pamela Ames, a former assistant district attorney in Crook's office and an unsuccessful challenger in the 1994 Democratic primary who plans to challenge Crook again in 2002. Some say Crook's hold on the DA's office might be coming to a close. There are reports he might not seek another term in 2002. With a related article explaining why DA's must turn all homicide cases over to the Attorney General's Office.
