Bronx District Attorney Darcel D. Clark today announced that Carmen J. Facciolo has joined the Office as Deputy Chief of Strategic Enforcement/Intergovernmental Relations Division, and Rachel Ferrari will be Chief of the Child Abuse/Sex Crimes Bureau.
District Attorney Clark said, “These new additions to our Office bring a scope of experience that will enhance our excellent staff and help us to give the people of the Bronx the criminal justice system they deserve, with intelligence-driven prosecutions, collaboration with our law enforcement partners and criminal justice stakeholders; and pursuing justice for the most vulnerable and traumatized victims.”
In his new position, Mr. Facciolo will collaborate with federal, state and local agencies on crime strategies and will develop partnerships with criminal justice advocates.
His most recent position was as a senior policy advisor with the U.S. Department of Justice, where he helped manage the DOJ’s efforts to support prosecutors, law enforcement and other criminal justice agencies. He directed DOJ’s Violence Reduction Network efforts in Compton, CA.
Ms. Ferrari will head the Child Abuse/Sex Crimes Bureau, in the Special Victims Division, when she joins the Office later this month.
Her most recent position was Deputy Chief of the Manhattan District Attorney’s Child Abuse Unit, where she supervised and trained attorneys on child abuse cases, oversaw caseloads and investigations and advised on legal and ethical issues, among other duties.
Ms. Ferrari served for 15 years in the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, prosecuting approximately 30 trials, including murder, rape and long term sexual abuse of children. In her 10 years in the Child Abuse Unit, she prosecuted felony cases of sexual and physical abuse of children and conducted long-term investigations of abuse at schools, institutional caretakers and religious organizations.
