ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM P. BARR ANNOUNCES THE DESIGNATION OF ANTOINETTE T. BACON AS ACTING U.S. ATTORNEY FOR THE NORTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK
ALBANY, NEW YORK – Upon the passing of former Albany County District Attorney Sol Greenberg, United States Attorney Richard S. Hartunian today paid tribute to his former boss as one of the giants of the legal profession and someone who exemplifies public service:
“Sol Greenberg established the gold standard for district attorneys. He was a devoted husband and father and cared deeply about people, and especially his assistant district attorneys and support staff, the residents of the county he served, crime victims, and those involved in securing justice for them. Sol pioneered the use of DNA to identify perpetrators of crimes and was ahead of his time in embracing the idea of crime prevention through education, recognizing even then that we cannot merely prosecute and imprison our way to safe communities. As we remember his life well lived, we give thanks for Sol’s decades of distinguished public service to our nation, our profession, and our community; for a legacy of lawyers who learned to serve the law in his office, by his words and example; and for his unwavering dedication to the fair administration of justice.”
