Senior ADA Jessica Melton, left, has received the New York City Bar Association’s Thomas E. Dewey Medal largely for her work in prosecuting sex traffickers. The medal is given annually to an outstanding prosecutor in each of the five boroughs.
ADA Nicole Reid received the Hal Miller Weinstein Award, given to an outstanding first-year ADA in memory of a former Queens prosecutor who was killed in a car accident in 1992.
ADA Marjory Fisher, right, chief of Brown’s Special Victims Bureau, received the Eugene J. Kelly Memorial Award given for dedication to justice. Kelly, who died at age 43 in 1992, won the conviction of the killers of NYPD Officer Edward Byrne in 1989.
