DA Magidson

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ken Magidson is reportedly Governor Perry’s choice for interim Harris County District Attorney. His appointment is supposedly contingent on his getting the U.S. Department of Justice’s approval to run the Harris County DA’s Office for 9 months and then return to his job at the U.S. Attorney’s Office, but this sort of announcement seems to me not to be the sort that a governor makes without being pretty darn sure the appointee is going to take the job.

I think Ken is a good choice to run the office during the election. He is an outsider who worked at the Office some 20 years ago; he strikes me as an honorable man who will have the support of both sides of the criminal bar in trying to fix what he thinks needs immediate repair at the Office while keeping it on course.Assistant District Attorneys can breathe easy for a few more months (though a backup plan is probably still a good idea).

  1. hello and thank you for taking the time to read my e-mail,
    I’ve read in the news paper where officer Miller was killed and first off i would like to express my condolences for his family. Now for why I’m writing this e-mail, the paper has said that Mr. Miller’s blood alcohol was over three times the legal limit. this has outraged me so much that I’m doing something I’ve never done. write letters; the man in jail should not be there. yes he did not yield to oncoming traffic but this is not the reason for the officers death. the drunk officer who was on duty at the time of the accident; is responsible for not controlling his vehicle and he was drunk!! let the man out of jail.
    Thanks again Eddie Hills [email protected]
