“I am proud of the work we have done in the District Attorney’s Office and the relationships we have built with law enforcement and the citizens in each of the counties,” said Tesmer. “As District Attorney, I work hard to enforce the laws of the State of Alabama, protect the rights of victims, ensure the families of our counties are safe, and treat everyone fairly and equally. There is still work to be done and I look forward every day to serving the citizens of Butler, Crenshaw, and Lowndes Counties.”
