Prosecution Assistance Unit

​The primary role of DFI's Prosecution Assistance Unit is to assist law enforcement and prosecutors in preparing criminal cases involving securities law violations. The unit also will provide the investigative support to successfully bring securities cases to trial.  The unit works with state and federal prosecutors and law enforcement, including the FBI, the U.S. Postal Inspection Service, the Secret Service, Kentucky State Police and local law enforcement officers. 

How we assist prosecutors and law enforcement:

  • Prepare draft jury Instructions
  • Assist in prosecution or actually prosecute the case
