Lead Deputy District Attorney Bobbie Mann
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. – Deputy District Attorney Bobbie Mann was recognized Thursday at the 15th Annual “Shine a Light” on Child Abuse Awards Breakfast for her commitment to child victims and her role as Lead Deputy District Attorney in the Family Violence Unit.
The annual event, hosted by Children’s Network, is held at the end of March as a kick-off for Child Abuse Prevention Awareness Month in April.
Deputy District Attorney Mann has been employed at the District Attorney’s Office since August of 2001. She has been assigned to the Family Violence Unit (FVU), which handles cases involving Child Abuse, Elder Abuse, and Domestic Violence. She is currently the Lead Deputy District Attorney overseeing the Central Division Family Violence Unit, a position she has held for two years.
As Lead Attorney, in addition to handling her own heavy caseload of very emotional cases, Mann has the responsibility of coordinating court appearances for the seven lawyers in the Unit and providing coverage when necessary.
According to Supervising Deputy District Attorney Denise Trager-Dvorak, DDA Mann works diligently to ensure that justice is done for the victims of heinous crimes on our most vulnerable victims and survivors.
“She has gone to the scene of some of the most horrific crimes to better understand what happened, and to prepare herself for the job of prosecuting the perpetrators,” Trager-Dvorak said. “She is truly a champion for abused and neglected children, and she encourages those with whom she works to do their best on behalf of the children.”
