Mr. Elias then went on to serve the Burlington County Prosecutor’s Office as an Assistant Prosecutor in the Grand Jury/Case Screening Unit, where he was tasked with evaluating, investigating and ultimately presenting hundreds of cases to the Grand Jury for indictment, ranging from simple charges of Shoplifting and Drug Possession to more complex, multi-defendant and multi-count indictments charging serious crimes such as Identity Theft and Armed Robbery.
