Craig Watkins was elected District Attorney of Dallas County in November 2006, becoming the first African American district attorney in Texas. Mr. Watkins is notable for his “smart on crime” approach to criminal justice, an innovative philosophy embodied in the prosecutor’s primary responsibility, which is to seek justice.
Under Watkins’ leadership, the Dallas County District Attorney’s office continually achieved laudable conviction rates, and focused on protecting the most vulnerable of victims. Watkins’ internationally recognized Conviction Integrity Unit, having reviewed more than 400 cases, continues to receive unprecedented success, and has become the model of integrity in prosecution throughout the nation.
Educated in Dallas Public Schools, Watkins graduated from Prairie View A & M University and later earned his juris doctorate from Texas Wesleyan University in Fort Worth.
