judge brent carr - tarrant county
criminal court No. 9
Judge Brent Carr is our guest speaker for May 3rd.
After serving as an artillery officer in the United States Marine Corps from 1976 through 1980, Judge Carr graduated from South Texas College of Law and served as a prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office until 1991. In 1991, the Tarrant County judiciary welcomed a new court to the foray, County Criminal Court No. 9, and with it a new colleague, Judge Brent Carr. Since he first donned his black robe and took the bench, Judge Carr has presided over 55,000 cases and 700 jury trials.
Judge Carr has been instrumental in bringing several specialty court diversion programs to Tarrant County. Diversion programs are judicially monitored treatment programs that seek to address the underlying problems leading to the commission of crimes. Judge Carr’s efforts have led to the creation of the Veteran’s Court Diversion Program, the Mental Health Diversion Program, and the Reaching Independence Through Self-Empowerment (RISE) High Risk Women’s Intervention Program
