District Attorney Craig Watkins: Dallas Morning News' Texan of the Year

Dallas County's first African-American District Attorney Craig Watkins has been selected as the Dallas Morning News' Texan of the Year.

This is significant recognition, not only for D.A. Watkins' attempts to provide the County with a professional and trustworthy prosecutorial office, but his pursuit of justice which has led to the exoneration of 19 men, wrongly convicted and incarcerated.

In November, my monthly column in DMN detailed the reasons I thought he was worthy of the recognition and I'm glad the editorial board of the News agreed!
