What is a district attorney’s office?

It is the duty of the Criminal District Attorney’s Office to prosecute all felony and misdemeanor cases that are committed in Kaufman County. Our job is to see that justice is done. Our office handles cases submitted to us by a law enforcement agency. We handle the cases through trial and all appeal proceedings.

We do not represent any one individual. Instead, we represent the State of Texas and the citizens of Kaufman County.
