Abby comes to Butler as a former prosecuting attorney for the 6th Judicial Circuit involving Pasco and Pinellas counties. As a prosecuting attorney, Abby managed a heavy caseload involving multiple divisions of felony drug court cases, DUI and traffic cases, domestic violence and abuse cases, and sensitive cases involving human trafficking victims. As a former prosecutor, Abby’s caseload consisted of troubled veterans charged with felony drug possession and domestic violence-related crimes, as well as criminal defendants charged with felony drug possession cases. Abby was the prosecuting attorney of the substance-abuse treatment court for the rehabilitation of veterans and criminal defendants in offering a deferred prosecution approach as opposed to punishment. While a prosecutor, Abby tried many jury and bench trials successfully to verdict.
