Thank you for your confidence and support. I am honored to serve the public alongside the men and women of the DA's office and our law enforcement community as the District Attorney of Montgomery County.
Commonwealth of Pennsylvania v. William H. Cosby
The jury spoke in one clear voice finding William H. Cosby Jr. guilty of sexually assaulting Andrea Constant. The path to this guilty verdict was a long one, and we couldn’t have gotten to this just verdict without the courageous support of Andrea and the other victims who testified in the trial. Fewer than five percent of all victims of sex crimes report the crime to law enforcement. We are hopeful that this case and this just verdict help pave the road for future victims to come forward to law enforcement and have their allegation investigated. We are equally hopeful that these same victims will not be subjected to the victim assassination that has been so prevalent in sex crimes trials to date.
In January, we dismantled a multi-state drug trafficking organization that used the US Postal Service to mail packages of crystal methamphetamine and marijuana from California to traffickers in Montgomery County. Our office, Bucks County District Attorney Matthew Weintraub, United States Postal Inspection Services’ Philadelphia Division Inspector-In-Charge Daniel Brubaker, FBI Bucks and Montgomery Safe Streets Task Force, and other federal, state and local law enforcement officials worked together on the effort. Through the course of the investigation, law enforcement identified what they believed to be more than 350 pounds of illegal crystal methamphetamine and marijuana sent in multiple shipments
I travelled to Harrisburg to support Marsy’s Law, which proposes a state constitutional amendment securing permanent, enforceable rights of victims. The proposed amendment stipulates that there be notice of hearings and other proceedings, protection from the accused, notice of release or escape, full and timely restitution, proceedings free from delays and with prompt conclusion, the ability to confer with the government’s attorney and information on all of these rights.
I was proud to be able to attend the Pottstown Serve & Connect, a community/police engagement tool designed to bring youth and uniformed police together in a fun, casual yet vigorous physical activity, to create information mentoring and relationship building.
Man of the Year
I was honored and humbled to be named the "2018 Man of the Year" by the Police Chiefs Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania, which encompasses Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties. Horsham Police Chief William J. Daly presented the award. I share with the Association their mission to secure the advancement of police professionalization by promoting the use of humane efforts in enforcement of laws, and the use of advanced methods for the prevention and detection of crime.
