MORGANTOWN, WEST VIRGINIA — Within days of starting his new job in Northern Virginia, Jonathan Heath ’17 was recognized by the Points of Light Foundation.
Heath was recently sworn in as a magistrate for the Commonwealth of Virginia’s 31st Judicial District, which encompasses Prince William County outside of Washington, DC.
As a magistrate, Heath will conduct probable cause and bail hearings and will issue a wide range of criminal and civil processes including warrants and emergency protective orders.
“I credit the opportunities and experiences I had at WVU Law with preparing me for this position,” Heath said. “I feel that courses such as interviewing, counseling and negotiation as well as the experience I gained both as a member of the Immigration Law Clinic and as a mediator gave me some invaluable hands-on experience.”
