Lance Oehrlein, Assistant District Attorney for New Hanover County
Lance is dedicated to prosecuting perpetrators of child sexual abuse in New Hanover County. He works closely with victims, their families and loved ones preparing them for the court process, while instilling hope and determination to keep moving forward in the fight for justice. Lance spends time with his young victims explaining as simply as possible the legal process and emotionally preparing them for what is to come. His dedication to survivors is evident in the time before and the time after legal proceedings conclude.
"Is a wizard a superhero? I think it'd be cool be a wizard; I'll take Merlin, the original wizard."
Trusty Sidekick: Master Yoda. In his prime when he could do like 300 back flips, and his Jedi powers were at full throttle.
Superpower: The most powerful super power in the ultra verse, which has yet to be harnessed: the power to make children get ready for bed, on time & with no whining.
If I could walk in anyone's shoes for a day: Neil Armstrong, the day he walked on the moon. But only for that one specific day, because I don’t want to spend all that time flying up there and traveling back to earth. Did you ever see The Right Stuff? Their training for spaceflight was brutal.
Favorite pair of shoes: My cowboy boots
What I love about working with the RCC:Last year the Rape Crisis Center staff broke the Guinness Book of World Records for most people stuffed into a Volkswagen Beetle. I was there and I saw it happen.
I agreed to be a hero in heels because:
