Deputy Attorney General Recognizes Plano Federal Prosecutor

WASHINGTON – Assistant U.S. Attorney (AUSA) Bradley Visosky of the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Eastern District of Texas was one of 179 members of the Department of Justice recognized by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, and Executive Office for U.S. Attorneys (EOUSA) Director Monty Wilkinson at the 33rd Director’s Awards Ceremony held on June 16, 2017 in Washington D.C.

The Eastern District of Texas was one of 35 districts represented at the ceremony, which was held in the Great Hall at the Robert F. Kennedy Department of Justice Building.

In his prepared remarks, Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein told the awardees, “These 179 award recipients embody the best of the Department of Justice. Today’s honorees have earned the esteem of their colleagues.  But most importantly, you have earned the gratitude of your fellow citizens — whose communities you have made safer, whose lives you have improved, and whose trust you have rewarded. ”

Bradley Visosky, of the Plano office, was recognized for his superior performance as an Appellate Assistant United States Attorney and, in particular, his handling of the appeal in a groundbreaking prosecution of Colombian nationals who trafficked thousands of kilograms of narcotics through the Eastern District of Texas and into the rest of the United States.  Twenty-seven Colombian defendants were charged with drug trafficking crimes, including conspiracy to import cocaine into the United States and manufacturing and distribution of cocaine to be imported into the United States.  Four went to trial and were convicted.  All appealed.  In voluminous briefing, the appellants raised issues covering almost every aspect of the trial, including the constitutionality and extraterritorial reach of 21 U.S.C. §§ 959 and 963, venue, sufficiency of the evidence, jury instructions, and sentencing.  AUSA Visosky’s well-written, concise brief and able presentation during oral argument—under intense questioning from the Fifth Circuit panel—resulted in a successful outcome.

    “Bradley Visosky is the go-to guy in the Eastern District of Texas for expertise in many areas of the law,” said Eastern District of Texas Acting U.S. Attorney Brit Featherston.  “Bradley’s adroit handling of this appeal ensured our district’s ability to protect the citizens of the Eastern District of Texas.  He selflessly handles his own appellate cases, and when requested, comes to the aid of his peers to provide valued assistance.  The district is honored to have Bradley chosen for a 2017 Director's award, and we are thrilled to have him as an outstanding Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Eastern District of Texas.”

EOUSA provides oversight, general executive assistance, and direction to the 94 United States Attorneys’ offices around the country. For more information on EOUSA and its mission, visit http://www.justice.gov/usao.
