Dear Dallas County Constituents,
Before I was elected in 2014 to my first term as Judge, I had the honor and pleasure of serving the citizens of Dallas County for 10 years as a lawyer and advocate in the Public Defender’s Office. It became my mission to ensure that Dallas County citizens received fair and equitable treatment under the law.
Since my Investiture in January 2015, I have had the privilege of being the presiding Judge of Dallas County Criminal Court #5. I am thankful that I have earned the trust of my constituents in Dallas County enough to reward me with a 2nd term on the bench. I will continue to use my God-given platform to continue my mission for the great citizens of Dallas County.
I have worked diligently to change the negative perception that many citizens have of our legal justice system by bringing fairness and compassion to the court. In 2016, I created the Green Y.A.R.D. Program (Young Adult Re-direction and Diversion). This 6 month program is designed to keep first time young offenders from having criminal convictions on their records. It is also a mentoring program designed to give them direction and guidance to stay on the right path.
I am also one of the four judges who implemented the community based program, Pipeline to Possibilities. This program is designed to educate youth on various aspects of the criminal justice system, and to inspire youth to realize their full potential.
By joining me in keeping Dallas County Green, we can continue to help first time young offenders to positively redirect their lives, and get mentally ill and substance-dependent offenders the proper treatment they need. This will help reduce the revolving door of the criminal justice system, cutting down on the recidivism rate. Join me in this journey by partnering with me in my Green Y.A.R.D. program, and supporting the Pipeline to Possibilities program to continue the effort to educate, mentor and empower our youth. We can continue to make it happen together when you re-elect me as your Judge for County Criminal Court 5.
