Press Release: K. Sunshine Stanek, Lubbock County DA
Monday, November 15, 2021

For Immediate Release:

I am pleased to announce today that I will seek re-election to the Lubbock County Criminal District Attorney’s Office. After being appointed to the vacancy in November of 2018 by Governor Abbott, I was elected and took office, being sworn in again on January 1, 2019. I look forward to serving the citizens of Lubbock County for another term.

During some of the most strange and trying times in the history of the criminal justice system, it has been my great honor to lead this office and stand up for what is right and just. There is nothing better than punishing those who have acted criminally, pursuing justice for victims and fighting for the safety of this community.

We will continue to target violent offenders, sexual predators, and those involved in gang, drug and firearm activity. Our strong working relationship with local law enforcement, the legal community and our many community partners will continue to promote and sustain these objectives.
