Chief of Investigations Department




Personal Statement:
   •   My life has been dedicated to working within the criminal justice system. I sincerely
       believe our system works when everyone does their job. My role is an integral part of the
       checks and balances that protect the innocent, which is why I work so hard. Attorneys
       depend on me to find the facts, witnesses and records of a case so they can confidently
       prepare for trial. Those accused of sex crimes deserve to have someone with background
       and experience, someone with the dedication to ask tough questions and find the answers
       which lead to the truth.
