My Mission

why I do what I do

My vision for the Gibson County Prosecutor’s Office is to ensure safer communities for the citizens of Gibson County. My office works to achieve this goal by conducting ourselves in a tough but fair and impartial manner. It is my hope that the work we do here is making a difference and that a change for the better has occurred.

The purpose of this website is to serve as a resource for the community as a whole, including victims, witnesses, law enforcement officers and for you the taxpayers and residents of this county. While prosecuting crimes is our primary responsibility, you may be surprised to find we do so much more. Some examples include our work in collecting child support or establishing paternity and our efforts to help crime victims find the financial and emotional support they need.

I hope you find this website informative and user-friendly, but more importantly I hope it gives you confidence that we are making every effort to ensure that our goal of safer communities is being met. Together, I believe we can make Gibson County a better place work, live and raise a family.
