Lubbock Assistant Criminal District Attorney, Scott Morris, has resigned his position to campaign for Judge, Lubbock County Court at Law, No. 1.  Morris is running against Mark Hocker who announced his candidacy back in December. 

Morris released the following statement on Tuesday:

"Throughout my 18 years of experience, I have seen all sides of our criminal justice system and I have prosecuted thousands of criminal cases. I have learned that our misdemeanor courts provide us with the best opportunity to change lives and to prevent future criminal activity. Together, my wife and I have prayed about this position and how to proceed in this campaign. We have decided that resigning my position as Assistant Criminal District Attorney is a significant step that will allow me to give my full attention to the campaign and these important issues. I am very excited to have this opportunity," said Morris.

Morris was appointed Chief of Crimes Against Persons by District Attorney Matt Powell and has served Lubbock County as an Assistant District Attorney and now seeks to serve Lubbock County as Judge. Morris is a graduate of Abilene Christian University and Texas Tech School of Law.
