For the Commonwealth: ADA Amanda Makoid

For the Commonwealth highlights the important work our prosecutors are doing to secure justice in specific cases brought by the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office. Today we highlight the work of ADA Amanda Makoid of our Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit.

Thanks to ADA Amanda Makoid, who secured justice for the daughter of a defendant — her father — who was found guilty yesterday of raping her and other related charges. She bravely testified against him, having been abused for nearly a decade. The defendant will be sentenced by the Honorable Timika Lane on October 29, 2018.
