Erin Oliver has been employed by the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit of Florida since June 2005 and has been an Assistant State Attorney since April 2006. She received her J.D. from the Mississippi College School of Law in 2005. After graduation, Erin moved back to her home state of Florida to pursue her career as an Assistant State Attorney. At the same time, Erin also taught as an adjunct professor in the Criminal Justice Program at the University of Florida.
While an Assistant State Attorney, Erin has prosecuted several animal abuse cases, most notably the case against dog trainer Ronnie Williams in Panama Beach City, Florida. The case against the Ebro Kennels owner received national attention after investigators discovered a gruesome scene at his facility -- 37 dead and five starving greyhounds who had been intentionally abandoned. Thanks to Erin’s aggressive prosecution and Judge Christopher Patterson, Williams was charged with 39 counts of animal cruelty; he was sentenced to five years in the department of corrections.
