Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office – The Rap Sheet

March 1, 2001


Everyone who works in the criminal justice system is constantly challenged. There is always so much to do and precious little time to get it all accomplished. In this never-ending balancing act we sometimes run across those
who shine; whose dedication inspires our respect and gratitude. On those days when our best efforts are met with no reward, these extraordinary efforts serve to keep us going in the good fight we engage in every day, and these efforts should be recognized and shared.
ASAs Jordan Lewin and Jonathan Davidoff recently went to trial on a years-old DUI case; the defendant had several prior DUI convictions. Imagine their dismay upon learning that the main witness in the case, Florida Highway  Patrol Trooper Daphne Yuncker, had moved to Naples since the arrest. However, Trooper Yuncker not only returned to Miami for this trial, but during the trial week, journeyed from Naples to Miami no less than three times, returning on one day just in case she might be needed for rebuttal testimony. She waited hours while the jury deliberated, so was present to hear the jury’s guilty verdict and the substantial sentence
imposed. Trooper Yuncker went above and beyond the call of duty, did a real service to our community and deserves our thanks and recognition.
