Family Violence Prosecution Unit

There is so much in the world to fear -- home should be the one place we know we are safe. When a person you care about-whether you are dating, married or part of the same family- is the one who hurts you, then it can feel like there is no safe place. The Rockwall District Attorney’s Office is deeply committed to making home the safe place it should be for the citizens of Rockwall County.  The complexity of these cases combined with the ever-shifting family dynamic between victim and offender make handling these cases a specialized job. And so, the Family Violence Prosecution Division of the Rockwall county District Attorney’s Office was established to provide the continuity and specially trained personnel required to prosecute these cases most effectively.

The Family Violence Prosecution Division of the Rockwall County District Attorney’s Office is a grant funded unit consisting of Assistant District Attorney Kerri New and Investigative Assistant Melody Henderson. They work closely with law enforcement and are dedicated to the prevention, detection, investigation and prosecution of all cases involving family violence.
