The Office of the Attorney General announced yesterday the addition of its newest assistant attorney general, Erin Toolan, who was sworn in on Thursday, Oct. 31.
Chief Justice Alexandro C. Castro swore in Toolan, who will be working in the OAG’s Criminal Division.
“We are very excited to add Ms. Toolan to the staff of prosecutors,” said chief prosecutor John Bradley. “She will begin in the Traffic Court, where she can get experience in the local procedures for handling criminal cases. But I’m confident she will soon be assigned more serious misdemeanor and felony cases.”
Toolan previously volunteered in the U.S. Peace Corps, serving in Benin, West Africa from July 2009 to August 2011. As a volunteer, she developed and managed a national summer girls’ empowerment camp. She also worked in French Guiana for several months, teaching an English class. She is fluent in French.
“I look forward to serving the community and advocating for survivors during my time in the CNMI,” said Toolan.
Toolan graduated from Baylor Law School in Texas in 2015. She has worked for three years as an assistant district attorney in two Texas counties, handling misdemeanor and felony cases in trial courts. She has special experience working with victims in domestic violence and sexual assault cases. (PR)
