Fernando Camacho

Formally the Administrative Judge for Criminal Matters, Queens County, New York State and the Acting Supreme Court Justice in the Integrated Domestic Violence Part in Queens County Supreme Court, Judge Fernando Camacho created a specialized court to serve teenagers charged with prostitution- related offenses in order to enable victims to escape prostitution by connecting them with counseling and case management services instead of sentencing them to jail.

“I am determined to find more partners in the struggle to eradicate the blight that is prevalent in many of our communities—the commercial sexual exploitation of our children.”
