Brown to seek 3rd Judicial District DA job

Posted: Updated:

LINCOLN PARISH,, La. (KNOE 8 News & Brown Campaign) - Prosecutor Cary Brown officially announced that he is a candidate for District Attorney for the Third Judicial District comprising Lincoln and Union Parishes. Brown says that after much prayerful consideration with his wife and children, he has chosen to seek the office out of his love for his community and the place that he calls home. “As a native of Lincoln Parish, with family also living in Union Parish, I can tell you that no one cares more about the citizens of this jurisdiction and their protection than I do,” Brown said.

 “It has been a great honor to work and serve as a felony prosecutor for the last ten years. During that time, I have had the opportunity to work with men and women from all areas of law enforcement. Our work together has included obtaining successful convictions against murderers, rapists, child molesters, drug dealers, white collar crimes and other offenses committed against our citizens and communities. I feel that my trial experience, my education in Criminal Justice, and my devotion and full commitment to my job, makes me uniquely qualified to provide advice and assistance to our law enforcement officers as they investigate and prepare cases for subsequent prosecution. This is neither a political stepping stone nor resume building for me. It is my life’s work and a mission to which I am dedicated. I know the meaning of hard work and truly care about all the people of Lincoln and Union Parishes,” Brown said.

Since joining the District Attorney’s Office, Brown has participated in more than 75% of the criminal jury trials in Lincoln Parish and maintained a 100% conviction rate as the lead prosecutor in felony cases that have proceeded to trial. Brown has prosecuted literally thousands of cases. He has also conducted legal seminars for law enforcement officers and has assisted with courses in Criminal Justice at Louisiana Tech University. “I hope that in some small way I can help to build and provide the same quality of life for my children that my wife and I enjoyed growing up and living here,” Brown said.

Brown is a graduate of Ruston High School, obtained his undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Southern Mississippi where he graduated with honors, and received his Juris Doctorate from Mississippi College School of Law. He is a member of the United States Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, Louisiana State Bar Association, Louisiana State House of Delegates, and Lincoln Parish Bar Association. In 2013, Brown was elected by his peers to serve as President of the Lincoln Parish Bar Association.

“The District Attorney’s Office currently operates several special programs such as the Truancy Assessment Service Center (TASC), Pine Hills Advocacy Center, adult and juvenile diversion programs and IV-D program (child support) designed to prevent crime and provide special assistance to crime victims. I intend to continue such programs and strengthen them whenever possible,” Brown said.

“As a District Attorney, my job is to seek justice above all else. I look forward to continuing my work, hand-in-hand, with each of our local law enforcement agencies so that strong cases are built and swift, appropriate justice is served. Criminals will be held responsible for their actions and the rights of everyone, in particular victims of crimes, will be respected. I will work hard on a daily basis to maintain the public safety for the citizens Lincoln and Union Parishes. If I have the privilege of serving as your next District Attorney, that is exactly what our citizens can expect. I am also committed to having set office hours in both Lincoln and Union Parishes so that I am accessible to all of our law enforcement agencies and citizens,” Brown said.

Brown has been married to Robyn Jackson Brown, of Ruston, for fifteen years. Robyn is the owner and operator of a small business, Heritage Realty Group. The couple are founding members of the Bridge Community Church in Ruston and have taught Sunday school classes for the last eight years. They are the parents of three children, Garrett (12), Hasson (9), and Brooks (6). Cary and Robyn reside in Ruston and each of their children attend Lincoln Parish schools.
