Acting District Attorney & 2016 Candidate
For the past five years, I have been vigorously prosecuting those who do our community harm. I have been Chautauqua County’s Acting District Attorney since January 1, 2016. As your top prosecutor since January 1, I’ve put drug dealers in jail, held murderers accountable for their actions, and worked diligently with healthcare providers, the courts, health officials and law enforcement to ensure that progress is being made against the nationwide health epidemic of opiate addiction.
Under my leadership, the District Attorney’s Office office is making a difference as we handle Chautauqua County’s most serious cases.
Through the efforts of me and my office;
- A plan is being shaped, with assistance from the state and federal government, to target our opiate market in Jamestown.
- I am working with the Jamestown City Court, through the Community Court Plan, making progress on a plan to screen defendants for potential drug use in an effort to intervene early to reduce the rate of recidivism and assist with keeping the jail population manageable.
- We have a comprehensive training program that aims to train our officers to keep them up to date on law, search and seizure and how to best provide testimony.
I have the experience, competence and organizational skill to continue to serve you and be the best District Attorney for Chautauqua County today and for the future.
