The Anti-Defamation League awarded its 2017 Helene and Joseph Sherwood Prize for Combating Hate to the law enforcement team on the international terrorism investigation and prosecution in Orange County for United States v. Nader Elhuzayel and Muhanad Badawi. Assistant United States Attorneys Deirdre Eliot, Judith Heinz and Julius Nam along with paralegal Lee Paige were awarded the coveted award at the Above and Beyond Law Enforcement Awards ceremony. The award honors those law enforcement professionals who are so committed to their work that they make a significant difference in their communities and serve as role models for their departments. The team was recognized for their “relentless dedication to containing and minimizing the prevalence and severity of hate motivated behavior…. using innovative approaches to enforce or prosecute hate crime laws.” Congratulations to the team.
