D.A. Warren Montgomery presents to the 22nd JDC Family Court’s Bar Association CLE.

District Attorney Warren Montgomery was pleased for his Office to be among the presenters at the 22nd JDC Family Court’s Bar Association CLE.  Mr. Montgomery and his Team, led by Assistant District Roy Burns, III, a domestic violence prosecutor, and Assistant District Attorney Tammy Keaton, who heads our Non-Support Division. Among the many positive statistics, the D.A.’s domestic violence section has been enhanced during the Montgomery Administration from one full-time and a part-time staff member working DV cases to five full-time staff members. In addition, they dismissed 197 fewer cases from 2014 to 2017 (224 to 27). Also, in 2018, of a total of 334 cases, 300 of them ended in guilty pleas and another five defendants were found guilty at trial. Just as spectacularly, our Child Support Division has made smart changes in its processing time, using all of the latest technologies. The division also has had some excellent personnel developments and communication improvements, and has reduced wait time from application to court hearing from 6 months to one to two months. In another milestone that is rare for child support offices across the country, our child support staff has exceeded 90% for cases in their caseloads with a child support obligation established at 90.29% and collected a whopping $52,849,539.90 in back child support for eligible constituents since 2017. So far this year, the staff already has collected $11,908,565.36.
