About this Article

When he's not in a DuPage County courtroom prosecuting felonies, Mike O'Donnell can be found in the Middle East serving his country. The 42-year-old Army veteran has been deployed three times in 10 years, including twice while holding down a job at the state's attorney's office. "I guess I just wanted to be a part of the long line of Americans who give back to the country through military service."
