Suffolk County has a new district attorney for the first time in 16 years.
After he took the oath of office from U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, former Police Commissioner Tim Sini told the county prosecutors in the audience that they are owed an apology for the damage to their reputation because of former D.A. Tom Spota. He said the day marks a “new era of criminal justice” in Suffolk County.
“One that ensures public safety, champions the law, and promotes faith and trust in our law enforcement agencies.”
