Criminal Division jury seats

Michael Wright

The majority of work in the district is prosecution of criminal cases. These criminal matters are referred by federal investigative agencies or developed through investigating and prosecuting other cases. Criminal matters are also referred by state and local law enforcement agencies. The responsibility to prosecute criminal violations of the laws of the United States requires that we work closely with investigative agencies to ensure a coordinated and effective law enforcement response to the problems of crime and violence in the district. Prosecution priority is on crime threats that have exclusive federal jurisdiction or are uniquely national or international in dimension.

The following sections, designed to implement the prosecution priorities of the office, comprise the Criminal Division in the Houston Office:

Asset Forfeiture/Finanical Litigation
Major Offenders
Narcotics Enforcement
Program Fraud
Special Prosecutions
