Criminal Division

The Criminal Division is comprised of twelve prosecutors, seven legal assistants, a litigation support specialist, an auditor, and a victim-witness coordinator.

The Criminal Division handles a wide variety of criminal cases involving public corruption, civil rights violations, fraud against the United States, fraud against citizens or companies, drug trafficking, and crimes of violence. The Criminal Division also administers an asset forfeiture program designed to strip criminals of the fruits of their unlawful activities.

In addition, the Criminal Division implements national, regional, and district-wide initiatives, such as Project Safe Neighborhoods, Project Safe Childhood, Weed and Seed, Small Town Initiative, Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force, and others designed to keep our communities and citizens safe from crime.

The Division also works closely with its law enforcement partners in the FBI, ICE, ATF, IRS-CI, Secret Service, USDA-OIG, and many state and local officers, combating crime and protecting our national security.

With the combined teamwork of our federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies, the Criminal Division strives to protect the citizens of the Northern District of Mississippi and the interests of the United States by providing equal justice to all.
