Anti-Corruption Unit

Led by Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney Steve Ruth, the Anti-Corruption Unit focuses primarily on complex white collar crimes involving losses over $100,000, as well as police officer cases involving an officer's excessive use of force or a firearm. Every discharge of an officer's weapon in the line of duty in DeKalb County is reviewed by the Office of the District Attorney through this unit. The unit also reviews and prosecutes cases involving public officials or county employees who breach duties of public trust.

The unit's experienced attorneys, investigators and paralegals prosecute complex fraudulent business practices, cyber crimes, romance scams, mortgage frauds, and crimes against government organizations and institutions where DeKalb County is a nexus for these criminal activities.
