Alvin Bragg has been appointed Chief Deputy Attorney General and Margaret Garnett Executive Deputy Attorney General for Criminal Justice, Eric T. Schneiderman, New York State Attorney General has announced.

Bragg has served in the Attorney General’s office since 2013, where he has served as the Executive Deputy Attorney General of the Social Justice division, overseeing the Charities, Civil Rights, Environmental Protection, Health Care, and Labor bureaus.

In 2015, Bragg was chosen to lead the office’s Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit, charged with investigating and, if warranted, prosecuting cases where unarmed civilians die during interactions with law enforcement.

Bragg will continue to serve as the head of the Special Investigations and Prosecutions Unit. As Chief Deputy, Bragg will oversee the Social Justice and Criminal divisions of the office. His counterpart, Chief Deputy Attorney General Janet Sabel, will oversee the Economic Justice and State Counsel divisions.

Current Chief Deputy Attorney General Jason Brown recently decided to return to private practice after two years.

Brown currently oversees all of the office’s criminal prosecutions and investigations--including financial crime and public corruption—as well as the agency’s state counsel division. During his tenure, Brown led several of the office’s highest stakes investigations and cases.

Garnett currently serves as Chief of Appeals for the Criminal Division of the US Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, where she has prosecuted a wide variety of federal criminal cases, including murder, robbery, extortion, narcotics, racketeering, fraud, and internet sex crimes.

“For nearly two years, Jason Brown’s wise counsel and steady leadership has helped our office navigate some of the most difficult and complex matters we’ve ever undertaken. He has been a driving force behind some of the office’s most important work and has been an invaluable resource for everyone here in the office. I thank him for his exceptional work and I wish him the best of luck,” Schneiderman said in a statement. “I am thrilled to announce the appointments of Alvin Bragg and Margaret Garnett—both of whom possess a wealth of legal knowledge and experience. Alvin is a dynamic attorney and exceptional leader and I am grateful he has agreed to assume a new and expanded role on our office’s leadership team. Margaret Garnett has earned a reputation as a thoughtful and unyielding prosecutor, and her years of experience handling complex federal prosecutions will be a critical addition to our criminal division.”
