Congratulations to my friend Catherine Evans on her appointment to the 180th District Court Bench to replace Judge Marc Brown.
I've had the pleasure of knowing and working with Catherine since she first started at the Harris County District Attorney's Office. She has always held an excellent reputation as a hard working, honest, and fair prosecutor. Over the past several years, she has been the head of the Vehicular Assault Team, investigating auto fatality cases, particularly focusing on offenses involving alcohol.
Governor Perry seems to be on a hot streak with his selections in the Harris County Criminal Justice World, lately, and I know that Catherine is going to be an outstanding judge.
