SCHUYLER COUNTY--Schuyler County District Attorney, Joseph G. Fazzary, announced the appointment of Ariana Marmora to the position of Assistant District Attorney as of Jan. 8, 2024. Marmora was born and raised in Schuyler County, and still manages her family farm in Hector. She is a graduate of Watkins Glen High School, Cornell University (Summa Cum Laude), and the City University of New York Law School. She comes to the office from the Tompkins County District Attorney’s Office where she prosecuted a full felony caseload for several years. She was also the Assistant District Attorney in charge of the Ithaca City Drug Court and the Law Enforcement Assisted Diversion (LEAD) program. Before taking her first prosecutor job in Tompkins County, she was a senior staff attorney and community outreach specialist for Mobilization for Justice, Inc. in New York City, where she represented tenants and cooperative shareholders in Supreme, civil, and administrative courts. Marmora has also been employed at the City University of New York as an Adjunct Clinical Professor in the Housing Law Legal Clinic.
ADA Marmora will be responsible for prosecuting felony and misdemeanor cases in Schuyler County Court and justice courts through trial and appeals.
According to District Attorney Fazzary, “Ariana is incredibly bright and has the education and experience to handle the difficult duties of an assistant district attorney. Schuyler County is very fortunate that she has decided to continue her career as a prosecutor in her hometown.”
“I am honored to have been chosen to work with DA Fazzary and his staff in my new role as Assistant District Attorney,” Marmora stated. “The statewide reputation of his office is outstanding, and I am excited to finally give back to my own community by advocating for and seeking justice on behalf of crime victims.”
The district attorney’s office is responsible for prosecuting all crimes committed by adults within Schuyler County. Among other things, the district attorney and his assistants handle burglary, robbery, sexual assault, larceny, homicide, and drug cases committed in the county. They are also frequently called upon to act as special prosecutors for neighboring counties when the home district attorney has a conflict of interest.
ADA Marmora will be joining DA Fazzary, Chief ADA Jeremy Hourihan, and ADA John Tunney in representing the County of Schuyler and the people of the state of New York.
With her addition to the team, the district attorney’s office has a combined one-hundred-plus years of experience prosecuting criminals and helping victims.
