Chris Mancini – President / Executive Producer / Subject Matter Expert - Email:

Chris is a criminal defense attorney with 41 years of extensive federal and state trial and grand jury practice in Miami, Palm Beach, Orlando and other courts across the nation. Born and raised in Rochester, New York and later to earn his degree in Law in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Chris Mancini arrived in Miami, Florida on assignment to the U.S. Attorney’s Office during the infamous period of the “Mariel Boat Lift”, when tens of thousands of Cubans fled their country to seek a new life in the Miami area. As a U.S. prosecutor, Chris soon discovered that some of the most violent and dangerous men and women were allowed to arrive during the boatlift. By 1986, he held the post of Deputy Chief of the Major Crimes Division, U.S. Attorney for the Miami office for the U.S. Department of Justice.

In the late 1990s Chris began gathering original artefacts and materials about the history of crime in Miami and especially corruption within the Miami Police Department. He interviewed past and present police officers and those most deeply involved in the investigation. Using what he had gathered, Chris designed and led a “murder, mystery and mayhem tour” every three to four months for members of the Miami-Dade Historical Society and that led to his deep understanding of the organization and effects of the extensive history of crime in South Florida.

Mr. Mancini is the author of two books, Pirates in Blue: The True Story of the Miami River Cops and Deliberate Indifference. The content for each episode is based on Chris’s original research. From Crime To Crime grew out of 41 years of experience in the federal and state courts. His resume is attached.
