Domestic Violence Prosecutor

Mr. O’Neill was the first dedicated Domestic Violence Prosecutor in Forsyth County.  As the Elected District Attorney, Mr. O’Neill has fought vigorously to obtain grants to sustain a specially trained Domestic Violence Prosecutor to handle Domestic Violence cases.  Mr. O’Neill also put a prosecutorial team together to review Habitual Misdemeanor Assault cases to focus on the defendants who are repeat offenders.  In addition, Mr. O’Neill has maintained the grants that allow Forsyth County to have specially trained legal assistants dedicated to the assistance of victims of Domestic and Relationship violence.
