Bexar County District Attorney Voter Guide

There’s one person in the system who can do a lot to end mass incarceration tomorrow if they want to — it’s the prosecutor. 

District Attorneys and the prosecutors they oversee are enormously powerful in the US criminal justice system, in large part because they are given so much discretion to prosecute however they see fit.

If we’re ever going to genuinely transform our nation’s criminal justice system, then we have to overhaul prosecutorial practices.
