Delaware County Prosecutor Melissa A. Schiffel was selected to serve again on the Executive and Legislative Committees with the Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association. The Ohio Prosecuting Attorneys Association is compiled of prosecutors from all 88 counties with elected prosecutors able to serve on committees.
“Again, I’m glad to have a seat at the table during this unprecedented time with increased violent crime and efforts to decriminalize certain criminal acts. I am thankful to have an influential voice with the Association,” Prosecutor Schiffel said.
The Prosecuting Attorneys Association assists county prosecuting attorneys in pursuing truth and justice and promoting public safety. “Issues that are near and dear to my heart continue to be fighting the attempt to decriminalize the use of serious drugs like heroin and continuing to advocate for the passage of the Strangulation bill that would elevate Strangulation from a misdemeanor to a felony on the first attempt.”
