THE criminal division under the NMI Attorney General’s office reported that felony cases last year rose by 44.76% from 2018.

In its 2019 annual report published recently, the AG’s office criminal division litigated 152 criminal felony cases, 215 misdemeanors, 8 juvenile cases, and 5,460 traffic cases. In 2018, the criminal division prosecuted 105 criminal felony, 90 misdemeanors, 25 juvenile cases, and 4,428 traffic cases.

The report showed that the criminal division instituted legal proceedings on 114 cases related to family violence, 121 general crimes, 90 property crimes, 28 drug cases, 11 cases relating to sexual assault, 3 public corruption cases, and other miscellaneous cases.

The 2019 criminal division report also highlighted the hiring of John Bradley as its chief prosecutor.

Under Bradley’s leadership, the criminal division restarted the use of E-Citations for the traffic division of the Department of Public Safety through a committee-based effort to resolve various technical problems.

The criminal division also highlighted how in 2019 it successfully protested the parole of a convicted murderer and successfully handled an extradition case on behalf of the State of Nevada, which sought the arrest and return of a Chinese national for check fraud. The defendant posted a $350,000 cash bail with the state of Nevada and was deported back to China.
