General. Carter, Moore County’s District Attorney, is being hailed as a super prosecutor.’ He is charged with the murder of Jesse Martin and Debra Dorsett and has just built a new children’s room at his office in Dumas, TX to accommodate all the victims. What’s more, he has been honored by victims and law enforcement agencies. Let’s look at what sets him apart.
Gen. Carter is a Moore County district attorney
Indicted in a murder case last month, Gen. Carter is the Moore County District Attorney. His office pursues justice for victims of violent crimes. His office puts public safety and victims’ rights as top priorities while enforcing the law. Here’s a look at his background. Before becoming a district attorney, Carter worked for Smith Cashion & Orr, PLC in Nashville. He specialized in construction disputes. He is a member of the Tennessee and American Bar Associations and earned his law degree from the University of Memphis.
Among his many accomplishments, Gen. Carter has held leadership positions in the Tennessee Bar Association and the National District Attorneys Association. He is also a former board member of Love Helps, Inc., a nonprofit organization in Nashville. In addition to his professional role, he volunteers for the American Cancer Society’s “Fabulous Fifties” event in Fayetteville. In addition, he served as an assistant baseball coach for Fayetteville Middle School from 2011-2013. His passion for helping people has led him to become the Moore County District Attorney.
He is based in Dumas, TX
The district attorney of Moore County is located at South Dumas Avenue in Dumas, Texas. Moore County is a city in eastern Texas. The Moore County district attorney’s office oversees the prosecution of felony crimes in that region. The 69th Judicial District includes Dumas, Sunray, Cactus, and parts of Fritch and Stratford. The Moore County district attorney is an elected official who represents residents of the counties.
The Moore County District Attorney’s office is located at 715 South Dumas Avenue in Dumas, Texas. This office is an important legal resource that oversees major decision-making activities in the Moore County area. The Moore County district attorney’s office oversees all major criminal case decisions. The district attorney also maintains court records, handles criminal complaints, and works with local police to determine whether to file charges.
He is charged with murdering Jesse Martin and Debra Dorsett
Jesse Martin and his wife, Debra, were charged with the murder of Elden Kitson Vanderwal, who died in an August 2014 fire at their home near Seagrove. An autopsy showed that Vanderwal had been murdered before the fire started. The two women remained in custody for almost seven years. Their trial is scheduled to begin on Nov. 25.
Hardin’s office has been implementing a stronger relationship with the local law enforcement community, as evidence shows. The district attorney’s office has implemented mandatory stamping on all serious felony files, so law enforcement can begin talking about the case as soon as possible. The office also reorganized its staff, assigning attorneys to certain types of cases. This allows law enforcement to work with one attorney instead of several. The centralized filing system has made cases easier to locate, too.
He has built a new children’s room to accommodate child victims
The Moore County District Attorney’s office has built a new children’s room so that those impacted by crimes involving children can stay with their children during their visit to the office. This facility is a great step forward in the justice system for victims and witnesses. It also gives victims and witnesses a place to wait while they meet with staff. This is especially beneficial for victims of sexual assault, child molestation, and exploitation.
A large number of Moore County felony victims never met with their attorney during their initial visit. While staff members might have spoken with them by phone or in person, they may never have seen their assigned attorney. Since Hardin took office on January 1, the office has made an effort to bring the child victims in for a meeting. As a result, the Moore County District Attorney’s office has received numerous letters and accolades from victims and law enforcement alike.
He has closed multiple cases that have been backlogged
Mike Hardin, the new Moore County District Attorney, has made strides to close cases that are backlogged in his office. The office reorganized its staff and assigned specific attorneys to different types of cases. The goal was to reduce the backlog in the Moore County Superior Court, but the results have been impressive. Over the last 11 months, Hardin’s office has closed 1,854 felony cases. Compared to the same period last year, the Moore County district attorney’s office closed 601 cases.
One of the reasons for closing backlogged cases is that the prosecutor has decided that the case is not the best for the state. Instead of pursuing a trial, they may recommend a plea bargain with the defendant to avoid getting into trouble. A plea bargain with the prosecutor is the best way to avoid jail time, but it does mean that another case will get backlogged. But it doesn’t mean that the prosecutor will always choose to close backlogged cases, so a case that’s backlogged for months or even years can be dismissed.
