The El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office announced that deputy district attorney Joseph Alexander received the Prosecutor of the Year award.

On Nov. 5 at an awards ceremony in Sacramento, the California Narcotics Officers Association Region II honored Joe Alexander as Prosecutor of the Year for our area. Deputy DA Alexander was nominated by several state and local narcotics officers who have worked closely with him in the enforcement of narcotics violations.

During the time period between July 1, 2012, and July 1, 2013, Alexander has managed, filed, or resolved a total of 219 cases, which is a third of all narcotics cases assigned to the District Attorney’s Office (west slope). DA investigator Dave Stevenson has worked narcotics investigations with Alexander over the last 10 years and commented, “During this time I found Mr. Alexander has taken a personal interest in narcotics cases. He has always been willing to review search warrants, respond to crime scenes and take a proactive approach when filing narcotics cases. Mr. Alexander is a strong supporter of law enforcement and more specifically narcotics officers.”

Alexander has worked for the El Dorado County District Attorney’s Office since 2001. During this time he has been responsible for prosecuting numerous complex felony cases including violent crime, homicide and the capital murder of California Highway Patrol Officer Scott Russell, and is currently supervising and overseeing the Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence Unit of the District Attorney’s Office.

District Attorney Vern Pierson said, “Joe has done an outstanding job at the District Attorney’s Office and truly deserves this award. He is an aggressive prosecutor who understands the legal system, and maintains a compassionate nature to all parties involved. Joe is a prime example of all the men and women who work at the District Attorney’s Office.”
