Economic Crimes Unit

Melissa Hockensmith

The Economic Crimes Unit, (“ECU”), investigates and prosecutes a variety of financial crimes such as felony theft, fraud, elder financial abuse and identity theft.  Investigation of these crimes can often be complex and time-consuming.  Attorneys and investigators work collaboratively to obtain information, review evidence, interview witnesses and make appropriate charging determinations.  ECU also strives to increase awareness of financial crimes by making community presentations and teaching at legal and law enforcement training forums.
