Harris County District Attorney @kimoggforda came into office promising to turn the criminal justice system around. But she has requested a $20 million dollar increase for her office to hire 102 prosecutors. This is a step in the wrong direction texascivilrightsproject.org/harrisco-ogg/
More prosecutors would result in more prosecutions and more people in our already crowded jails and prisons. More alarming is the fact that District Attorney Ogg makes this request without accounting for the current allocation of resources in her office. texascivilrightsproject.org/harrisco-ogg/
We need to look for ways to trim the District Attorney’s budget, not increase it. We should spend our limited resources on expanding educational, housing, occupational and public health services that include mental health counseling. texascivilrightsproject.org/harrisco-ogg/
We call on the County Commissioners Court to take a step back and truly examine the District Attorney’s current use of resources and reject any requested increase. texascivilrightsproject.org/harrisco-ogg/
