“Why I Became a Prosecutor” introduces some Westchester County Assistant District Attorneys. These prosecutors represent the people in the courtrooms of Westchester County from the village, town and municipal courts throughout the county to the Daronco Courthouse in White Plains and the New York State Court of Appeals. Their job is to advocate for justice on behalf of victims, whether they be individual victims of crime at any level or the taxpayers and voters of the county who may have been taken advantage of by public servants.
