Gary Dawson has been a prosecutor his entire legal career.  From 1996 through 2008 he was a prosecutor in the St. Lawrence County (Canton, NY) and the Onondaga County (Syracuse, NY) District Attorney’s Office.  He became a member of the Onondaga County DA’s Office Special Victims Bureau in 2001.   He was promoted to Deputy Bureau Chief of Special Victims in 2006, and then Bureau Chief in 2008.   This bureau specialized in prosecuting some of the most sensitive of all crimes –those involving children, child and adult sexual assaults, and domestic violence.  He has also handled numerous computer-related cases against children and was appointed a Special United States Attorney for the Northern District of New York for prosecutions of child pornography.   He joined the 18th Judicial District DA’s Office in October of 2008, and was a Senior Deputy in the Special Victims Unit from April 2009 through December 2015.  He now is a Senior Deputy in the general felony docket.

He has spoken to numerous public, service, and law enforcement agencies on issues of domestic violence, sexual assault and criminal law.  Over his career, in addition to SVU cases, he has prosecuted cases covering virtually all facets of criminal law, including homicides, narcotics, fraud, DUI, and arson.

Gary created the RISK program while in Syracuse and it has gone on to educate over 11,000 parents and kids in New York.   The program was highlighted on a December 2007 Fox News segment on internet safety.  Since 2009, RISK has already succeeded in reaching over 14,000 parents and students in Colorado.

A native of Southern California, he tries to cope with the lack of gridlock traffic (which he misses so very much), and the lack of smog, earthquakes, mudslides, Kardashians, and the astronomical cost of housing in Los Angeles by downhill skiing, following the Yankees, hiking,  drawing cartoons, being one of those insufferable CrossFit people, and keeping up with his three dogs.
