If you’ve contested a traffic ticket in Omaha then chances are you have talked to one man. Now the city prosecutor is preparing to close the book on his public service.
Marty Conboy tells Channel Six News that he’ll retire at the end of August. Conboy has been city prosecutor for 18 years and in the office for more than 30 years. He’s in charge of lawyers who prosecutor misdemeanor crimes.
Conboy told Channel Six News, “I’ve tried as best I can to help people through the problems that bring them into the criminal justice system. The whole process at the misdemeanor level should be accountability but with the purpose of trying to get people to avoid breaking the law.”
Conboy said one major focus for him has been helping the legislature refine Nebraska drunk driving laws to make them both fair and tough while doing his best to prevent repeat DUI offenders from driving drunk again.
Once he retires august 31st Conboy said he take time to travel but stay close to the law by teaching. He hasn’t ruled out a return to the courtroom in private practice part time.
Conboy told Fact Finders Mike McKnight that at this point he has no desire to apply for any judgeship openings that might come up.
