Chesson to Run for District Attorney
Chesson, 50, has practiced in Calcasieu Parish for more than 20 years, handling criminal defense, bankruptcy, lemon law, personal injury, and other cases. He ran for District Attorney in 2014 and earned 43 percent of the vote against an entrenched incumbent.
"The people of Calcasieu Parish deserve a D.A. who is independent and fair-minded,"
"Undoubtedly my critics will say that I have a personal agenda or am running on a vendetta," Chesson said. "Nonsense. My only desire is to serve the people of my lifelong home with integrity, transparency, and justice. It's what all Americans deserve, and what is long overdue in Calcasieu Parish."
Chesson, a Democrat, is the father of four and grandfather of three. He is a graduate of McNeese State University and Southern University Law School.
