A 21st Century
New Orleans has led the world in convictions and incarcerations for decades, without any corresponding decrease in crime. It’s time for us to be as smart on crime as we’ve historically been tough on crime. The District Attorney’s Office is simultaneously increasing safety and delivering justice with a laser focus on serious offenses and a belief that every New Orleanian deserves the presumption of innocence.

But, he is a civil servant most of all—a singularly honorable man guided by an ethos of respect for others, justice for all, and leadership through it all.
