Marble Falls resident Steven Todd has recently announced that he is entering the race to be the next District Attorney by seeking the Republican Party Nomination for the 33rd/424th Judicial District Attorney’s Office. Currently, the Republican primary is scheduled for May 29, 2012. Todd has prosecuted Felony crimes as an Assistant District Attorney in all four counties included in the 33rd/424th district (Blanco, Burnet, Llano and San Saba), working in Oatman’s office from 2000 to 2007. In March of 2007, Todd was hired to prosecute criminal cases state-wide by Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott’s office, joining the Criminal Prosecutions Division of the AG’s office. “As a full-time, experienced and hard working prosecutor, I am best qualified to step into the vacancy to be created with Mr. Oatman’s retirement, as I am the only candidate to have been a full-time prosecutor in the Hill Country where my wife Jennifer and I have been raising our 4 children in the Marble Falls area since 2000.”

While working in the four county area which makes up the 33rd/424th district, Todd handled more felony prosecutions, grand jury presentations, jury trials and overall criminal cases and responsibilities than any other single attorney. “I love living here and thoroughly enjoyed serving the communities of the 4-county district as an Assistant District Attorney and would be honored with the opportunity to seek justice for crime victims and the public as the next District Attorney” explains Todd. “I have served both as an Assistant District Attorney locally and as Assistant Attorney General fulfilling the role of District Attorney pro tem in counties from East Texas to far West Texas to the Valley, the Border area and up to Texarkansas for the Attorney General’s office.” Todd has prosecuted capital murder cases, sending a murderer to death row and multiple “mini-cap” cases resulting in a maximum punishment of Life without parole, both locally and in other Texas counties.

“Defending the trial court successes in felony cases is important and an important part of the D.A.’s responsibility, and I have a solid record of winning when defendants try to avoid responsibility by seeking to reverse a conviction or punishment on appeal,” explained Todd. Todd’s numerous successful prosecutions locally and across the State can be found in more detail on his website at

Todd and his wife Jennifer are both originally from San Antonio. He graduated summa cum laude from Texas Lutheran College in 1991 with a double major in Political Science and Economics, worked for the Social Security Administration for 3 years and then attended the University of Texas School of Law, in Austin obtaining his law degree in May of 1997. Before moving to Burnet County to serve as an Assistant District Attorney under Oatman, Todd began his prosecuting career as an A.D.A. in 1997 in Brownsville, Texas which has a population in excess of 250,000. In addition to full-time local public service as an A.D.A. and state-wide as an Assistant Attorney General, since moving to the Hill Country Todd has served actively in the community in many roles including coaching soccer for many years in Marble Falls for the Granite County Youth Soccer Association, coaching elementary basketball for both Upwards Basketball and MFISD Young Guns programs, as well as actively serving as an Assistant Scout Master for Boy Scout Troop #284 and in various roles serving in local church congregations.
