District Attorney Keith StutesBon Jour Mes Amis! Je suis fier d’etre le avocat de district!!

I am proud to be your District Attorney, from deep in the heart of Acadiana, the 15th Judicial District of the State of Louisiana, the parishes of Acadia, Lafayette, and Vermilion!

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the Office of the District Attorney, welcome to our website.  Please navigate through the site, explore it, and learn more about what we do and what services we offer to the people of the 15th JDC.  Of course, our lawful duty is to seek responsibility, fairly and equally from those who violate the law.  Our duty is also to represent and to protect the interests of the people in this role, not a single or particular person but the people collectively.  The programs and services offered by the office illustrate those duties which we take very seriously.

We are committed to bring integrity, fairness, and respect to the office.  As your District Attorney I am committed to restore confidence in the office from the people who look to the office for protection from those who violate the law.  We are committed to restore the respect of those who work in the criminal justice system and depend on the office to do justice.  I will lead the office in this commitment.  I will earn your respect, your confidence, and your support every day.  We will raise the bar.

The office is absolutely accessible to you.  Your questions will be answered as much as is allowed by law.  Please feel free to contact the various offices in Abbeville, Crowley, and Lafayette with any questions.  Merci!

Keith Stutes
