Led by General Counsel and Deputy Chief ADA Rupal Vaishnav, the Anti-Corruption Unit focuses on prosecuting complex criminal cases. Specifically, the Unit is comprised of experienced attorneys, investigators and paralegals who have extensive knowledge in handling complex criminal and civil cases. They focus their efforts on prosecuting individuals who hold a position of public trust with the government, which is either elected or non-elected, at the time when they breached their oath of office by committing various nonviolent misdemeanor and/or felony offenses. Additionally, the unit pursues prosecuting those individuals who use fraudulent business practices or a position of authority to deceive citizens and illegally take their money through complex financial schemes which were either exercised or controlled in DeKalb County. Losses are generally over $100,000.00 and crimes range from violation of oath of office, false statement, forgery, identity theft, various theft charges to mortgage and other types of fraud and embezzlement.
