District Attorney for the 22nd JDC: Warren Montgomery

Warren Montgomery has been the chief prosecutor in St. Tammany and Washington Parishes since 2015, and during that time has restored a sense of professionalism following the dispiriting corruption investigation and eventual conviction of former District Attorney Walter Reed. Among the reforms Montgomery introduced is the creation of a screening division, which he credits with accelerating the time from arrest to conviction.
