Hamilton County deserves a full-time, 21st Century Prosecutor.
As the third largest county in one of the biggest states in the country, we need an elected Prosecutor who is on the job around the clock. We need someone who will marshal modern, smart, and cutting-edge approaches that protect families and communities. We need someone who will reform what is broken about the criminal justice system while rebuilding the public’s trust.
Under Gabe’s leadership, the Hamilton County Prosecutor’s Office will achieve safety and justice through best practices, innovation, and a data-driven approach.
Advance proactive, intelligence-based, community prosecution.
Diversify the office so that its leadership and ranks reflect the community that the office serves.
Create Hamilton County’s first Conviction Integrity Unit to investigate and guard against wrongful convictions.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM
Our justice system is broken. The cash bail system criminalizes poverty and misfortune while allowing wealthy individuals charged with crimes to buy their freedom.
Our jails are overcrowded with non-violent offenders and low-level cases that cost too much and don’t make us safer. Drug offenders are too often met with incarceration when treatment and public health intervention is more effective and appropriate.
Implement alternatives to cash bail for those charged with low-level non-violent offenses in order to ensure equitable justice.
Pursue alternatives to incarceration for low-level offenders and drug abusers, and will ensure youthful offenders are treated appropriately and fairly.
With years of experience in the Department of Justice, the Manhattan District Attorney's Office and representing clients here in Cincinnati, Gabe will ensure that justice is served for victims and survivors of crime, and that those who harm our fellow community members are behind bars.
By shifting focus and resources away from minor offenses, Gabe will ensure that more serious crimes such as those involving gun violence, domestic violence, sexual assault, human trafficking, and murder receive the attention they deserve.
With Gabe’s record prosecuting those who abuse their power, you can be sure that fraud, corruption, and official misconduct will also be taken seriously.
TRUST IN COMMUNITIES
As the son of a Cincinnati Police Officer and as a former civil rights attorney, Gabe is uniquely qualified to bring communities and law enforcement together.
Build trust through outreach, increased transparency, accessibility, fairness, and professionalism.
Work with residents, community leaders, public officials, faith leaders, police officers, other law enforcement, formerly incarcerated persons, grassroots activists, business leaders, defense attorneys, and judges to build and restore faith in our justice system.
