Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – Assistant U.S. Attorneys David P. Petermann and Matt Dillon have been recognized as Region 1 Prosecutors of the Year by the Association of Oklahoma Narcotic Enforcers, announced Mark A. Yancey, United States Attorney for the Western District of Oklahoma.
The Association, also known as A-ONE, has facilitated the exchange of information among Oklahoma narcotics investigators since 1989. Through regional meetings and training sessions, it keeps members informed of current investigative techniques, patterns of drug abuse, changes in the law, and other topics.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Petermann and Dillon received their awards at the Association’s Annual Training Conference on August 3, 2017. This recognition is the result of the successful prosecution of a large drug-distribution and money-laundering organization. The Drug Enforcement Administration, the Criminal Investigation Division of the Internal Revenue Service, the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office, and the Oklahoma City Police Department participated in the investigation, which involved more than a dozen wiretaps.
Mr. Petermann has prosecuted drug and violent crimes in the Oklahoma City U.S. Attorney’s Office since 2007. He also serves as the office’s Senior Litigation Counsel. Before 2007, he was an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the District of Arizona. Mr. Dillon joined the U.S. Attorney’s Office in 2014, after serving as a Team Leader in the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office. He is also the office’s liaison to the Joint Terrorism Task Force for the Western District of Oklahoma.
