A Message From The District Attorney

2020 was a year of unprecedented challenges but challenges breed the opportunity for growth and advancement. Our goal at the District Attorney’s Office is to serve the citizens of Ouachita and Morehouse parishes by providing necessary services to victims of crimes and prosecution of those who harm others by their criminal actions. To meet these goals in 2020, we had to adjust to the use of new technologies and techniques: court by Zoom, digital meetings with victims and witnesses, face masks and plexiglas shields. I’m proud of the staff and attorneys who made sure our work didn’t stop despite the myriad challenges of COVID. We are thankful things have returned to a level of “normalcy” in 2021. The Louisiana Supreme Court allowed trials to resume as of April 1st. We’ve had several trials since then. We can once again meet in person with victims and witnesses. Please contact us for assistance. We look forward to serving you.
