CA DOJ - Financial Fraud & Special Prosecutions

Postby Anonymous User » Fri Apr 13, 2018 6:31 pm

I am interested in the Financial Fraud & Special Prosecutions unit of the California DOJ. Does anyone know exactly what they do (do they only prosecute, or do they also investigate like AUSAs)?

Also, what type of attorneys do they hire? (former DAs, bigfirm attorneys, etc?)

Thank you!

Description here (emphasis added):

The Financial Fraud and Special Prosecutions Unit investigates and prosecutes complex criminal cases occurring in California, primarily related to financial, securities, mortgage, and environmental fraud; public corruption, including violations of California’s Political Reform Act; “underground economy” offenses, including tax and revenue fraud and counterfeiting; transnational organized crime; human trafficking; and crimes within the scope of the Attorney General’s Bureau of Children’s Justice. Vertical teams of prosecutors, investigators, auditors, and paralegals often work with federal and local authorities on cases involving multi-jurisdictional criminal activity.
