MESSAGE FROM THE DENTON COUNTY CRIMINAL DISTRICT ATTORNEY
Welcome to the Denton County Criminal District Attorney’s website.
As the elected Criminal District Attorney for Denton County, I am pleased to provide this site for the residents of our county to learn more about their Criminal District Attorney’s Office.
I am blessed to work with some of the finest prosecutors, investigators, and staff in the State of Texas. Men and women committed to professional excellence, compassion and respect for victims, and the attainment of justice with the highest integrity and skill.
The primary duty of all prosecuting attorneys is "not to convict, but to see that justice is done." In some case cases, seeking justice and protecting the community means making sure that violent or habitual offenders are sentenced to prison. But in other cases, pursuing justice means providing a Veteran, a first-time drug offender, or a non-violent individual diagnosed with a mental illness with the opportunity to participate in a treatment court program aimed at rehabilitation and recovery.
As your Criminal District Attorney, I strongly believe the primary responsibility of the District Attorney is to seek justice and enhance public safety for all citizens by aggressively, fairly, and ethically prosecuting those who violate the law. As such, my office will work hard to ensure Denton County remains a safe place to live and work.
