An Economic Report on the Budgetary Reasonableness of the 22nd Judicial District, Office of the District Attorney for the Period

Please review the “Ed Bee Report” which analyses in great detail how the D.A.’s Office’s efficiencies saved taxpayers money in reducing jail costs.

“Unfortunately during times of crisis there are those that look to take advantage of the hardships that many of us are suffering from in the wake of Hurricane Ida.  Those who look to take advantage of the citizens of Washington and St. Tammany Parish will be met with the full weight of the criminal prosecution arm of the District Attorney’s Office.  The best offense we can mount to avoid being taken advantage of is a strong defense. Below, please find some tips and resources to help during this time.  If you believe you have been criminally taken advantage of, know the law, be informed and contact our office.”

— District Attorney, Warren Montgomery
