A Statement From The Office Of Kevin Berger

From the office of Kevin Berger  •  For immediate release  •  March 13, 2017   

(Rockingham County, NC) – Just a few years ago, the Rockingham County District Attorney’s office ranked among the best and most effective in the state. It was tough on crime, delivered justice for the people of Rockingham County, and led the state in several key categories.

Unfortunately, Craig Blitzer has undermined the integrity of the District Attorney’s office. And while resigning amid state and possibly federal investigations was the right decision, Mr. Blitzer has dealt a serious blow to our community’s confidence in its criminal justice system.

The citizens of Rockingham, and those in the legal profession, are now tasked with picking up the pieces, and there is a lot of work to be done to repair the damage.  We expect many motions and other appeals in numerous cases as a result of Craig Blitzer’s actions. The cost to the taxpayers could be significant.

I am thankful Governor Cooper promptly named an interim replacement.  Tom Keith has an excellent reputation as a District Attorney

In the end, we must and we will do everything we can to ensure trust is restored to the criminal justice system.
