Appointed Dallas County top prosecutor Faith Johnson loses

DALLAS (AP) — One former judge will replace another as district attorney for Dallas County.

Unofficial election results show voters Tuesday chose Democrat John Creuzot (kroo-ZOH’) to be the county’s next top prosecutor.

Creuzot will replace Republican Faith Johnson, who in December 2016 was appointed by Gov. Greg Abbott to serve as district attorney.

Johnson was named to finish the term of Susan Hawk, who took office in 2015 but resigned in September 2016 following inpatient treatment for mental illness.
