“In serving the citizens of Liberty County as the lead prosecutor with the County Attorney’s Office, I am hitting a new stride, focus and fulfillment in my legal career. It is exciting to work with the law enforcement officers serving the citizens of Liberty County to maintain and improve the quality of life for all of our cities, communities and neighborhoods.”– Karen McNair
As lead prosecutor in the Liberty County Attorney’s Office, Karen has worked diligently to implement a strict structure for enforcement of fines and probation terms to discourage further misdemeanor crime in Liberty County. At the same time, she has worked to minimize “justice delayed” by reducing the number of days an inmate spends in jail between the offense and judgment.
Karen explained that those implemented reductions preserve the integrity of each citizen’s constitutional rights. Justice must be fair, impartial, and swift. Timely completion of prosecution is mandated by the right to a speedy trial. Those mandates further benefit all the citizens of Liberty County by reducing the overall costs of prosecution to the tax payer while assuring the constitutionally protected rights of the accused.
“As Americans, our freedoms are ingrained in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. At all times and in every way, prosecution must respect those founding documents. Justice must be impartial. Justice must be swift. Justice must be sure. It is only then that we remain secure in our lives, our liberties and our pursuits of happiness.” – Karen McNair
Karen McNair is pleased to announce that she is seeking the nomination to the office of District Attorney in the March 6, 2012, Republican Primary Election.
