MADD Names Virginia Beach Prosecutor Top DUI Prosecutor In U.S.

Comments (0)

Mothers against drunk driving (MADD) recently named a prosecutor from Virginia Beach as the top DUI prosecutor in the U.S.

 

After beating out hundreds of other prosecutors across the nation, Charisse Black tearfully accepted the award.

 

Virginia’s MADD leadership nominated Black due to her aggressive prosecutions of drunk drivers, particularly one who injured a Virginia Beach police officer.

 

According to the commonwealth’s attorney, Black excels at DUI prosecution, despite ever-changing DUI laws and loopholes.

 

Black says the legal challenge of staying on top of said changes keeps her motivated.

 

Part of the presentation brought tears to Black’s eyes because it was personal. Kaye Walsh, the woman who nominated her, lost her daughter to a drunk driver. Walsh gave Black a pair of her daughter’s earrings as a thank you.
