Assistant City Attorney Maureen O’Brien, above, hit a metaphorical home run at the Twins game this summer when the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office recognized her as a member of the 2021 DWI Enforcer All-Star Team for taking drunk drivers off the road. 

In a case before the Minnesota Supreme Court with potentially wide-reaching implications for the prosecution of all future DWI cases throughout Minnesota, Maureen successfully argued that prosecutors are not required to prove that a driver had “intent” to drive with controlled substances in their body. Maureen is one of two prosecutors and 59 law enforcement officers from around the state who were honored this year.
