Bernalillo County District Attorney

Raul Torres hs made waves since taking over as District Attorney in Bernalillo County in 2017, clashing with judges, administrators and sometimes lawmakers, as he pushes to remake the DA's Office and ramp up the fight against crime, especially repeat offenders. Previous to being elected as DA, he had served as a White House Fellow during the Obama administration, worked as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney's Office in Albuquerque, and ran his own one-man law firm.
