PHILADELPHIA (Nov. 24, 2015) – Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams today announced that Angel L. Flores will be the office’s new Deputy for the Juvenile Division. Flores was most recently the office’s Bureau Chief for the East Division. He is filling the position vacated by George D. Mosee who is now the office’s First Assistant District Attorney.
“ADA Flores has about fourteen years of experience working and supervising Assistant District Attorneys in our Juvenile Unit. Then he made amazing progress as the Chief of our East Division in terms of taking care of his team, preventing and prosecuting crimes, and building strong relationships in the community,” said Seth Williams. “ADA Flores has always believed that effective prosecutions don’t happen in a vacuum, and we need strong crime prevention goals, which is why he will be able to use his vast experience to reduce truancy, prevent our youth from entering into the juvenile justice system and, once they are there, get them the help they need so they don’t reoffend.”
“I’m honored that District Attorney Williams has appointed me to be the next Deputy of the Juvenile Division. I look forward to returning to the division where I spent fifteen of my twenty-four years as a prosecutor. I also look forward to continuing the great work of First Assistant George Mosee, who has been a mentor and dear friend to me,” said Angel Flores. “And to my fellow ADAs who work so hard every day in the East Division and to my many friends in the community, from Feltonville to Harrowgate and from Kensington to Franklinville, don’t worry – I’ll still be working with you to make our communities safe and secure.”
The Juvenile Unit is made up of the Child Support Enforcement, Habitual Offender, Juvenile Court, Juvenile Diversion and the Youth Violence Reduction Partnership Units.
Angel Flores has been an Assistant District Attorney in the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office since 1991. Since 2010, he has been the Bureau Chief for the East Division and was responsible for the prosecution of all crimes, except homicides and sexual assaults, committed in the 24th, 25th and 26th Police Districts. In addition to serving as the Chief Assistant District Attorney in the Juvenile Unit, he has been assigned to the Habitual Offenders Unit and the Family Violence and Sexual Assault Unit, where he prosecuted rape and child abuse cases.
Mr. Flores earned his law degree in 1991 from Temple University’s Beasley School of Law and his B.B.A. with honors from Temple University in 1988. Among the numerous awards he has received, he was honored by the Temple University LALSA Life Time Mentor Award in 1999, Center City District 2010 “Award in Excellence in Crime Prevention” and the Council of Spanish Speaking Organizations of Philadelphia (Concilio) with the 2011 “Citizen of the Year” award.
