In the courtroom, DuCharme personally prosecuted two Brooklyn residents who traveled to the Middle East to kill American soldiers as well as a trio of trained suicide bombers while also neutralizing threats to the U.S. during the rise of ISIS in 2014.

In the violent crime area, he secured gang convictions that included a prominent drug ring that operated out of a Brooklyn neighborhood.

The prosecutor started his law career after graduating from Fordham University School of Law in 2003 and becoming an associate of the firm Simpson Thacher & Bartlett, LLP. Before making his way to the EDNY, he served as a deputy U.S. marshal in the Southern District of New York.
