ASA Bell Receives 2022 “Respect for Law” Award from Calvert County Optimist Club

Senior Assistant State’s Attorney Lee Ann Bell received the 2022 “Respect for Law” award from the Calvert County Optimist Club at a banquet held on September 12th.  The award is presented annually to one individual from each of the County’s law enforcement agencies in recognition of outstanding achievements in the field of public safety.


Within the State’s Attorney’s Office, Ms. Bell is primarily responsible for prosecuting felony narcotics cases.  Over the past year, however, she also obtained convictions for three defendants charged with first degree assault that resulted in substantial sentences of incarceration.


State’s Attorney Robert Harvey wishes to thank the members of the Optimist Club for their unwavering support of the law enforcement community.
