Crenshaw Named Jefferson County District Attorney 
 
BEAUMONT, Texas – An Assistant United States Attorney in the Beaumont Office of the U.S. Attorney has been appointed to serve as the next Jefferson County District Attorney, announced U.S. Attorney John M. Bales.
 
On Jan. 27, 2014, Texas Gov. Rick Perry appointed AUSA Cory Crenshaw as the District Attorney for Jefferson County, Texas.  Crenshaw replaces long-time DA Tom Maness who retired in December 2013. 
 
Crenshaw, 34, is a native of Beaumont and a 1997 graduate of Kelly High School.  Crenshaw attended Baylor University where he received a degree in history and then earned his law degree at Texas Tech University in 2004. Crenshaw began his career in prosecution in Bryan/College Station in 2005 as a state felony prosecutor where his caseload focused mainly on child sex predators and gang offenders. In 2010, Crenshaw began his federal career in the Southern District of Texas as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in McAllen, Texas.  His heavy border caseload focused on narcotics, immigration, and firearm offenses.  He joined the Eastern District of Texas in December 2012 where he served in the Beaumont office prosecuting complex drug trafficking crimes as part of the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force (OCDETF).   
 
“We are excited for Cory and Jefferson County,” said U.S. Attorney Bales.  “Judge Maness’ legacy of achievement will not be tarnished by Cory’s stewardship.  Naturally, we look forward to continuing our close partnership with the Jefferson County District Attorney’s Office.”
 
The Eastern District of Texas is comprised of 43 counties stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the Oklahoma/Texas border.  There are 6 staffed offices located in Beaumont, Lufkin, Tyler, Texarkana, Plano and Sherman with over 50 federal prosecutors.
