District Attorney, ‘Nico’Â LaHood’s Commitment on Child Abuse
Newly elected Bexar County Criminal District Attorney, Nico LaHood is staying true to his promise to stop child abuse in our county with the creation of the Child Abuse Unit. The Child Abuse Unit is made up of 18 dedicated prosecutors who fight to seek justice for children who have been abused and neglected. A Child Abuse Unit prosecutor, investigator and advocate are assigned to each of the ten District Courts.Â In 2015, this unit sent a strong message to those who hurt children by securing convictions and long term prison sentences. His message is clear…. “Children are a gift from God and itâs our obligation to protect them,” said Bexar County Criminal District Attorney Nico LaHood. “Our Office created the Child Abuse Unit for this reason. We have more than a dozen dedicated prosecutors who fight to seek justice for children who have been abused and neglected. We will continue to aggressively prosecute those who would dare harm our children.” – Bexar County Criminal District Attorney, âNicoâ LaHood.
