Welcome to the Denton County Criminal District Attorney's web site. This site was developed for the citizens of Denton County to keep them informed about the activities of their District Attorney's Office. I believe it is important to use current technology to effectively communicate with the public. As a result, I have directed my staff to continue to upgrade and improve this site in order to better serve you. I hope this website will show our commitment to serving our community through effective prosecutions within the criminal justice system. 

If you have any comments, suggestions, or questions, please feel free to e-mail. Your input is appreciated.
