It is my privilege to serve as Mecklenburg County's elected District Attorney. My office is responsible for the prosecution of all crimes that occur in Mecklenburg County. Since I took the oath of office in 2011, I have worked to ensure that my office's resources are effectively used to protect our community. I've instructed my prosecutors to target violent and habitual criminals and demand active prison sentences for those convicted of residential break-ins.

In partnership with the public, law enforcement, judiciary, the Public Defender's Office, community groups and civic organizations, I am committed to professionally, fairly and efficiently seeking justice and making Mecklenburg County a better and safer place to live, work and raise a family.
