FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
APA’s Statement on Monique Worrell
The role of the duly elected chief prosecutor is to serve their communities as ministers of justice. The voters of Orange and Osceola County, Florida elected Monique Worrell to fulfill that role, which she has done dutifully until her sudden removal by Governor DeSantis. In her role as chief prosecutor, she has pursued justice, safety, and the well-being of her communities; goals that were undermined when the democratic process was interrupted by this use of executive authority. We stand with all prosecutors who use the lawful discretion of their offices to hold individuals accountable for their actions, protect the victims of crime and work to improve the safety of their communities.
