Assistant prosecutor settles into new position.

By Allison Scarbrough, Editor.

HART — Kevin Harrrington II is the new chief assistant prosecutor for Oceana County.

Harrington takes over for Chad DeRouin who accepted the prosecutor position for the Upper Peninsula’s Iron County. DeRouin was hired as Oceana’s assistant prosecutor in March of 2017.

Harrington graduated from law school at Valparaiso University in Indiana in 2010. He graduated with a bachelor’s of arts degree in history from the University of Michigan in 2007. He graduated from Orchard View High School in 2003 and grew up in the Muskegon area.

He began his duties in Oceana in July. 

“This is actually my first, real attorney position,” said Harrington. He worked at Fairlife in Coopersville, which produces dairy products, since 2013. “I started as an operator and then got offered a role in the office.” He worked in continuous improvement, data administration and analytics. 

“I’m enjoying it so far,” he said of his new job.

“I want to learn as much as I can and really improve my trial skills,” he said. 

He lives in the Muskegon area with his wife and young daughter, and his parents live in Oceana County as well as his sister and her family. He used to vacation in Pentwater as a child.

“It’s a really nice team here,” Harrington said regarding the staff at the prosecutor’s office. “Joe is a great teacher,” he said of his boss, Oceana County Prosecutor Joseph Bizon.
