(Springfield Regional Office)

Attorney General Maura Healey is looking for a highly motivated individual to join the Western Massachusetts Regional Office in Springfield to conduct investigations and prosecutions in the Gaming Enforcement Division within the Criminal Bureau. The Gaming Enforcement Division is a statewide team of prosecutors, investigators, and administrative and other staff, partnered with the Massachusetts State Police, and charged with investigating and prosecuting gaming-related crimes, pursuant to M.G.L. c. 12, § 11M.

Primary Duties: The Assistant Attorney General (AAG) will be involved in investigating and prosecuting criminal conduct related to expanded gaming in the Commonwealth, including violations of M.G.L. c. 23K, G.L. c. 267A and M.G.L. c. 271, and other illegal activity such as gaming-related financial crime, organized crime, corruption, and money laundering. The work in this position will emanate from the casino in Springfield and the AAG will work closely with prosecutors and staff of the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office.

The AAG will be expected to handle a caseload and will be charged with leading and coordinating investigations and prosecutions with State Police and Springfield Police in conjunction with other prosecutors, victim/witness advocates, paralegals, and support staff. The Gaming Enforcement Division is a statewide division, and the position requires a candidate with a proven track record of versatility and adaptability, the ability to build bridges and exercise good judgment.

Division members work closely with the State Police Gaming Enforcement Unit assigned to both the Attorney General’s Office and the Gaming Commission, as well as federal, state, and local law enforcement partners, which demands a demonstrated history of successful partnerships with other law enforcement agencies. Additional duties will include screening potential cases, fostering relationships with industry stakeholders, participating in training, and working cohesively with others in the Attorney General’s Office and the Hampden County District Attorney’s Office.

Position Type: Full-time/Exempt
