Republican Barry Johnson for McLennan County District Attorney.

“I’m running because the citizens of McLennan County deserve better. I feel the Twin Peaks case has been terribly mishandled by current District Attorney Abel Reyna and could expose McLennan County taxpayers to millions of dollars in liability - already over $500,000 in overtime pay for the Sheriffs Department during just the FIRST trial!"

"Equally disturbing is the sworn affidavit from Reyna’s former first assistant alleging Reyna dismissed criminal cases for friends and influential people in exchange for campaign donations. Justice is in jeopardy in McLennan County and I won’t stand for it.”

Barry Johnson is a highly respected lawyer with 28 years of expert experience in State and Federal courts handling over 1,000 cases and many court trials.  He is AV Preeminent Rated by prestigious Martindale-Hubbell, is board certified by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization, and was named a Super Lawyer by Texas Monthly magazine.

Born and raised in Waco, Johnson is a 1979 graduate of Baylor University. Johnson is the son of the late Judge Joe N. Johnson, who served as justice of the peace and state district judge for 40 years. His grandfather, Roy B. Johnson Sr., operated the first service station in Waco at Fifth Street and Webster Avenue.

Barry Johnson has three adult children and attends First Presbyterian Church in Waco. Barry has a history of mentoring young lawyers, giving back to our community, and 10-20% of his cases are ‘Pro Bono’ - without compensation to help those who cannot afford proper legal counsel.

Barry Johnson is the right person for the DA! 

Whether you are Republican, Democrat, or Independent, having a honest and qualified DA is critical to the prompt and fair administration of justice.
