An Assistant State Attorney with the Fifth Judicial Circuit Court of Florida was recently named the Prosecutor of the Year by the Florida Attorney General.
Erin Corcoran Daly, who serves the Fifth Circuit through its Hernando office, was named Prosecutor of the Year by Florida Attorney General Ashley Moody earlier this week.
Daly has served her office for 15 years and is assigned to the Special Victim’s Unit specializing in sex crimes and crimes against children.
The Attorney General honored Daly during the 2021 Human Trafficking Summit on Tuesday, October 5.
“It’s such a privilege to work with the dedicated child protective investigators, law enforcement officers, prosecutors, and all the organizations, public and private, who are continuously advocating and battling to keep our most defenseless citizens and children safe and to punish the perpetrators of these atrocious crimes,” said Daly. “The survivors who have the courage to come forward and share their stories make these challenging cases possible and are the true heroes deserving of praise (and) on behalf of these nameless victims, I am truly honored to be recognized in this fight to end exploitation of our most vulnerable citizens.”
The Fifth Judicial Circuit Court is comprised of over 250 employees serving more than 1.2 million residents in Citrus, Hernando, Lake, Marion, and Sumter Counties.
