True Las Vegas Crime Stories from Tom O’Connell
Tom spent nearly 30 years in law enforcement, as a police officer and Assistant District Attorney in New York, and as an Assistant United States Attorney in both Las Vegas, Nevada and San Jose, California, where Tom retired from the U.S. Department of Justice in 2013.
Arguably, his most interesting experiences occurred during his 13 year tenure in Las Vegas, where he served as both Senior Litigation Counsel and Chief of the Narcotics and Violent Crime Section. See Tom’s Significant Cases List to get some idea of the insane matters he handled during the Las Vegas boom years.
Though frequently pissed off throughout his career, retirement has given Tom much more free time to think about things, and (usually) get even more pissed off.
