Representing the People
As the people’s lawyer, I am committed to keeping our community safe and strong. I’m a career prosecutor with over 20 years of service in the office.
Pursuing Justice, Protecting Our Community
With our new High Priority Offender team, we are vigorously prosecuting the small percentage of the criminals who are committing a large percentage of the crimes. We are using data and technology to identify and target the worst offenders. I’m confident this innovative program will reduce crime and make our community safer.
We’ve successfully reduced property crime by collaborating with law enforcement and we pursue justice every day on the thousands of cases we handle each year.
Our Elder Abuse Unit, which I formed in 2011, is a leader in the state for both prosecution and prevention of elder ebuse. We are committed to protecting elders and other vulnerable victims.
Serving our Community, Keeping It Safe
In addition to the vigorous prosecution of criminals, we collaborate with the community on access to justice as well as intervention and prevention, including successful efforts to stop the state from dumping felons from other counties onto our streets. We take strong and principled stands in both the civil and criminal arenas.
I’ve successfully lobbied the legislature for laws to improve public safety, such as stricter penalties for vehicular homicide, the closing of legal loopholes, and improvements in mental health care. Please check the Media page for updates as the good people in our Prosecutor’s Office continue to keep our community safe.
Finally, I’m always available to speak with community groups.
Thank you. It’s a privilege to serve.
