Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales Honors Employees and Others at The Department of Justice’s Annual Awards Ceremony

Individuals Involved in Enron Trial Receive Top Awards

SEP 12 -- WASHINGTON -­ More than 230 Justice Department employees – along with 42 other individuals, many of whom are federal employees and law enforcement officers – were honored today at the Department’s 54th Annual Awards Ceremony at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C. The Attorney General’s Annual Awards Ceremony provides an opportunity to recognize the extraordinary accomplishments of a number of U.S. Department of Justice employees as well as individuals from outside the Department.

Deputy Attorney General Paul J. McNulty presented the Department’s highest award, the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service, to the outstanding members of the investigative and trial team of the Enron Task Force, who were recognized for their exceptional service to the American public and the Department in the investigation and successful prosecution of the individuals who were most responsible for the Enron fraud. This hard-fought battle was won through the dedication of the team members, who devoted years of their professional lives to this effort and, in doing so, made significant personal sacrifices by living away from home for long periods of time and working under stressful conditions. The team’s unparalleled dedication and teamwork over a period of years has made a significant contribution to restoring confidence in the nation’s securities markets.

“Today’s award recipients make me proud to be their colleague,” said Attorney General Alberto R. Gonzales. “Their dedication and achievements remind me why it is an honor to serve at the Department of Justice.”

The recipients of the Attorney General’s Award for Exceptional Service from this team include:

In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, many Department employees responded to assist those most impacted. The first award was presented to employees whom prioritized the needs of others and service to the public above their personal needs.

Cousins and May Y. Lee, Trial Attornetys, San Francisco Field Office. The team was responsible for significant criminal antitrust cartel prosecutions.

From the Justice Management Division, Melinda B. Morgan, Director and Marcia K. Paull, Deputy Director of Finance Staff, were rewarded for providing effective leadership and direction to the Department’s financial audit community.

Award recipient Barbara Rowland, Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, resolved two significant civil fraud cases in the pharmaceutical arena, recapturing $261.5 million for Federal health care programs. Her efforts resulted in passing the benefit of the lowest price available in the marketplace to Medicaid beneficiaries.

Another honored recipient, Bryan Sierra, Public Affairs Specialist, has expertly managed media relations for complex and high profile cases, including the Padilla case, Enron, and the Moussaoui trial. His efforts to explain to the public the important work of the Department are extraordinary–he consistently goes beyond the call of duty, even accepting the dangerous mission of traveling with the Attorney General to Iraq in July, 2005.

In recognition of outstanding professional achievements by law enforcement officers, four Excellence in Law Enforcement Awards were presented this year.

Special Agents David P. Biddiscombe and James Langtry, New York Division, Federal Bureau of Investigation and Detective Robert J. Brzeski, Detective, Nassau County Police Department, New York, were honored for dismantling the Velt Gangsta Lanes set of the Bloods gang in Roosevelt, New York, as part of the joint federal and local Operation Streetsweeper. Their efforts resulted in the apprehension and conviction of 22 Bloods gang members on racketeering charges involving narcotics trafficking, assaults with firearms and incendiary devices, murder and attempted murder.

The second award for Excellence in Law Enforcement was presented to Christopher M. Garay, an Emergency Medical Technician from the Federal Correctional Complex in Tucson, Az, part of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, who fought his way out of a housing unit overtaken by inmates. His concern for fellow staff members after the disturbance was noted.

Another distinguished group was awarded for their contributions in the investigation of former New York City Police Department detectives Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa, who exploited their law enforcement positions to perpetrate a broad range of racketeering acts on behalf of the Luchese organized crime family. Honorees included, from the Drug Enforcement Administration, John M. Peluso, Assistant Special Agent in Charge; and Special Agents Mark Z. Manko, John E. Perfetti, John P. Francolla, Geraldine A. Hart, and David J. Wolf , all from the New York Field Division. Those honored from the Federal Bureau of Investigation included Geraldine A. Hart and David J. Wolf, Special Agents in the New York Division.

The Award for Excellence in Law Enforcement was also presented to members of an agency task force who conducted a 22 month investigation to catch a serial arsonist. The arsonist was responsible for the deaths of two people within the Washington Metropolitan Area. All individuals honored serve in the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives. The list included Theresa R. Stoop, Special Agent in Charge; David L. McCain, Assistant Special Agent in Charge; William J. Stringer, Group Supervisor; Thomas R. Daley, Scott R. Fulkerson, Tijuana N. Patty, Special Agents, Baltimore Field Division; and Joseph M. Riehl, Chief, Arson and Explosives Programs Division.

The Attorney General’s Award for Excellence in Furthering the Interests of U.S. National Security was presented to the trial team involved with the Moussaoui case. Members of the team overcame numerous obstacles in what was an extremely complex and extended national security case. Ultimately, they were able to uphold the Department’s goal–the prevention of terrorist attacks and the protection of national security–by securing the guilty plea of an avowed al Qaeda terrorist, and seeing that he spends the rest of his days in prison.

Members of the team included, from the Ceriminal Division, John W. Van Lonkhuyzen, Trial Attorney; Gregory A. Miller, Counterterrorism Support Specialist and Security Officer; Suzette R.

Brady, Jr., Intelligence Research Specialist; Gerard C. Francisco, Legal Administration Specialist; and Wendy Olsen Clancy, Victim Witness Specialist. Members of the team from the Civil Rights Division include Kevin Gingras, Trial Attorney, Criminal Section. Hose from the FBI include James M. Fitzgerald, Brian L. Getson, Lisa M. Rich, and Matthew M. Gutierrez, Special Agents; Joan-Marie Turchiano, Supervisory Special Agent; Brenda Holley, Technical Information Specialist, New York Division; Jacqueline Maguire and Matthew G. Walsh, Special Agents, Washington Field Office; Lisa B. Eie, Special Agent, San Diego Field Office. From the Justice Management Division, the team included Christine E. Gunning, Security Specialist, Security and Emergency Planning Staff. Also awarded was Raymond A. Guidetti, Detective Sergeant First Class, New Jersey State Police; and from the Central Intelligence Agency, Jonathan H. Ferry and John L. McPherson, Agents.

The Mary C. Lawton Lifetime Service Award went to David Margolis, Associate Deputy Attorney General, Office of the Deputy Attorney General. Throughout his career, David Margolis has exemplified the dedicated public service, leadership, and integrity demonstrated by Mary C. Lawton. The contributions that Mr. Margolis has made to the Department are not simply characterized by length of service.
