John F. Healey, Jr. 

John F. HealeyMy staff and I are honored to represent the people of Fort Bend County in all of our duties and responsibilities. In my thirty-one years as a prosecutor, I have been a part of many positive changes in the law enforcement community as we work to meet the needs of our growing county. Within my office, specialized divisions have been developed which allow prosecutors proficiency to address crimes which threaten the peacefulness of our community. They include child abuse, economic crimes, narcotics, domestic violence, and juvenile crime units. Fort Bend County crime victims are supported by a compassionate District Attorney's Office crime victims assistance division.

This website will continue to develop to showcase our work and the services provided by my office. Rest assured that we will strive to live up to our responsibility to see that justice is done. Simply put, we will always try and identify, and to do, the right thing.

If you would like to speak with me or visit the District Attorney's Office, know that I have always had an open door policy. Everyone is welcome to call or stop by.

 

Mission Statement

The Fort Bend County District Attorney's Office represents the people of the State of Texas in all felony and misdemeanor criminal cases in the district courts, county courts at law, and justice courts. It is the primary duty of the District Attorney and his assistants, not to convict, but to see that justice is done. Additionally, the District Attorney represents the State in asset forfeiture cases, bond forfeitures cases, juvenile matters, protective orders, as well as aiding crime victims through its victim assistance coordinator.

If you have any questions, please contact us.
