Domestic Violence / Sexual Assault

The Domestic Violence / Sexual Assault Unit handles all DeKalb County adult sexual assault cases and high lethality domestic violence cases,  including domestic violence and sexual assault homicides.

In addition to giving these special cases the expertise, care and commitment they deserve, the Unit also assists and trains law enforcement officers, medical personnel and crisis counselors in the areas of domestic violence and sexual assault and informs judges of current domestic violence and sexual assault law to aid in fair rulings and appropriate sentences.

The Unit is led by Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Joanna Helsby.
