"Confessions of a Hayseed D.A." A Special Lecture by Kathleen Meehan Do
February 23, 2023 @ 7:00pm - 8:00pm
Robert R. Meehan (1930-2004) served as the District Attorney of Rockland County from 1965 to 1974. He would later go on to become New York State's Special Assistant Attorney-General for Medicaid Fraud and a Rockland County and New York State Supreme Court Judge until his retirement in 2000. He chronicled aspects of his career in a manuscript that was edited by Kathleen Do, his daughter, and published in 2022 as Confessions of a Hayseed D.A.
In this special lecture, Kathleen Meehan Do will recount her experiences locating the manuscript, editing the text, researching cases her father cited, and interviewing some of the key players whose names appear in the book's pages. In his page-turner, D.A. Meehan takes the reader through his journey from naive do-gooder to seasoned prosecutor, investigating and solving heinous crimes in Rockland County and surviving an attempt on his life that upended his family’s world.
