Attorney Whit Graves has announced that he plans to challenge incumbent Bossier/Webster District Attorney Schuyler Marvin this fall.  

Before going into private practice, Graves served as an Assistant District Attorney, and later Chief Prosecutor, under previous District Attorneys Henry Brown and then Jim Bullers for 12 years.  Before that, he served almost 12 years with Louisiana State Police. He says he’s been encouraged to run for D.A. by many friends and supporters.

Graves says he wants to move the District Attorney’s Office back to the way it was under Henry Brown.  He says he wants to be a responsive and responsible D.A. and run an office that’s honest, open, and caring. And he says that, if elected, the operations of the D.A.’s office will be open and transparent to everyone in the two parishes.

Graves says he’s making some specific promises, if elected, to the citizens of Bossier and Webster Parishes.

First, he says he will reinstate the practice of placing police reports into the public record where anyone who wants to can read them.

Second, he wants his office staffed with full-time Assistant District Attorneys.

Third, he says he will prosecute criminals, not hire them.

And fourth, he says he will be responsible and responsive to crime victims.
