Respect has grown for Nicole Duvé over time

I am a retired investigator with the State Police who spent 20 years investigating crimes, dealing with victims, perpetrators, the district attorney’s office and the rest of the criminal justice system in St. Lawrence County.

I have no agenda and am most definitely not a politician. I am a registered Republican, and anybody who knows me can attest to my conservative beliefs. I did not vote for Nicole Duvé when she initially ran for office and was very skeptical of her at first.

As time passed, I grew to respect her, though, and I’m not easily impressed, especially by Democrat lawyers. I investigated many important and newsworthy cases during my tenure at the State Police in Gouverneur, and Nicole worked hand in hand with me to prosecute a number of these cases.

She went the extra mile and then some to obtain convictions in them. Anytime I called her to address a concern, she picked up the phone or promptly got back to me. She is an excellent prosecutor inside the courtroom and a stand-up person outside the courtroom.

No one empathizes with crime victims more than me. And anytime a victim does not get justice, it is a tragedy. I can assure you that Nicole feels the same way.

There are a lot of criminals cooling their heels in the prison system, that she put there, who can also vouch for that.
