Biography

Ohio Attorney General Mike DeWine started his career as a County Prosecutor. DeWine had seen violent offenders get off with light sentences. Out of that experience, he changed the law to add extra-time for those who use a gun to commit a crime. He continued to protect victims through his work in the U.S Congress, where he received numerous awards from victim rights organizations. And, as Ohio Lieutenant Governor, DeWine worked to reform our parole system so that violent offenders remained locked up.
“In the U.S. Senate, I promoted the emerging DNA technology, establishing and expanding a truly national database for DNA, fingerprint, and ballistics information, so that violent offenders — no matter where they traveled — could be caught and prosecuted.” DeWine specifically targeted funds to Ohio’s crime lab — the Bureau of Criminal Identification and Investigation — to keep our families safer.
While others were on the sidelines, Mike DeWine has, for over 30 years, fought to protect the unborn. He was one of a handful of U.S. Senators to lead the charge to ban the horrific partial-birth abortion practice. DeWine wrote and pushed for passage of the Unborn Victims of Violence Act, which for the first time, created a federal law recognizing that an unborn child is a separate victim when the mother is attacked. And, he wrote the “DeWine Amendment” each Congress to prohibit federal tax dollars from being used to pay for insurance to provide abortion coverage.
Michael DeWine was born on January 5, 1947, in Springfield, Ohio, and grew up in Yellow Springs. He married his high school sweetheart Frances Struewing while both were students at Miami University. After graduating from Miami, DeWine attended Ohio Northern Law School, and was awarded his JD degree in 1972. The DeWines have resided in Cedarville Township since Mike graduated from law school. They attend St. Paul’s Catholic Church and are the parents of eight children: Patrick, Jill, Rebecca, John, Brian, Alice, Mark, and Anna. Fran and Mike are now the grandparents of 15 grandchildren.
