UTICA, N.Y. – First Assistant District Attorney Dawn Lupi has decided to retire after 31 years with Oneida County.
Lupi worked as a prosecutor for many cases throughout her career, specializing in cases involving crimes against children.
She says she considered retiring last year on her 30th anniversary, but feels like it’s finally time this year.
"Well I just started thinking, 30 years after last year, to just start seriously considering retirement. And after I've been thinking about it, I thought it was just the right time,” said Lupi.
District Attorney Scott McNamara says Lupi will be sorely missed at the DA’s office.
"You know she has been there 31 years, and it does take a toll especially that type of work; and I’m happy for her that she’s able to go out and spend time with family,” he said.
Lupi started at the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office in April of 1988.
