For a decade [1987 – 1997] I was the head of the White-Collar Unit at the Oklahoma County District Attorney’s Office and worked with Jan daily. Her expertise was invaluable to the successful prosecution of thousands of crimes such as: Bogus Checks; Forgeries; Embezzlements; Robberies and even Murder. Her expertise and work ethic was impeccable! I do not recall even a single instance in which she made a positive determination that did not end in a conviction for the State of Oklahoma. Jan’s reputation for making a determination, ONLY after she was 100% certain of it, was such that after reviewing her analysis Attorneys would invariably ask to have a private discussion with their client, which always ended with them returning and seeking a plea agreement rather than face Jan’s testimony at trial. Quite simply, Jan’s reputation for honesty and accuracy was beyond reproach!
