NEW: Coakley Appoints Gaming Enforcement Division Chief

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

 

Attorney General Martha Coakley appointed Assistant Attorney General Patrick Hanley to be the Chief of the newly-formed Gaming Enforcement Division on Tuesday.

“Patrick has extensive experience investigating and prosecuting intricate criminal enterprises, and has displayed the leadership qualities needed to oversee this Division,” Coakley said.

“Our new Gaming Enforcement Division will serve to maintain public safety, prevent fraud, and ensure integrity in the gaming industry, and Patrick will lead those efforts well.”

Hanley previously served as senior counsel for the Attorney General's Enterprise and Major Crimes Division, part of the Criminal Bureau, where he conducted a number of long-term investigations into both traditional and non-traditional criminal organizations and enterprises.

He was a major player in cases against members of a drug distribution operation out of Boston, as well as the prosecution of alleged mob captain Mark Rossetti. Hanley also received the Thomas F. Reilly Award for Excellence from Coakley in 2010.

As head of the new Gaming Enforcement Division, Hanley will be in charge of the statutory duties stemming from Massachusetts' expanded casino gaming laws from late 2011. The Division will enforce civil and criminal gaming laws throughout the Bay State and will also provide legal representation to the Gaming Commission and the Commonwealth in various capacities.
