Chief Deputy District Attorney Shanon Clowers-Sanborn has built her remarkable 14-year career in law enforcement by prosecuting over 1,000 criminal cases with over 45 jury trials including homicides and sexual assaults.
She successfully prosecuted Gloria Lee, the owner of Prince and Princess Pet Boutique, who conspired to burn down her pet store with 27 puppies inside to collect a $100,000 insurance claim. Shanon’s relentless prosecution resulted in Lee receiving a sentence of 5-14 years in prison for Arson, Insurance Fraud and Cruelty to Animals.
A month-long spree of hateful, sexually motivated, and horrific crimes in the Las Vegas community ended for good when Chief Deputy District Attorney Shanon Clowers-Sanborn methodically prosecuted Sean P. Cordeiro and secured a sentence of 96 years to life in prison for him.
Shanon has proven her understanding of and compassion for humanity by volunteering with Help International to empower people to fight global poverty through sustainable, life-changing development programs. Shanon served three separate vital tours in Peru, Nepal, and Uganda helping in underdeveloped areas.
“The more you know of the world, the more you know of yourself,” said Shanon. “In turn, the more you can do for your community and for others.”
