The office of Criminal District Attorney differs from

the State of Texas in all prosecutions in both the District Court, and in all lower courts of the county
. The Criminal District Attorney is an elected position with a term of office of four years.
Section 44.167 of the Govt. Code states: "The criminal
district attorney of Eastland County shall attend each term and session
of the district courts in Eastland County and shall represent the state
in all criminal and civil cases in the courts of the county. The
criminal district attorney has all the powers, duties, and privileges in
Eastland County relating to criminal or civil matters involving the
county or state that are conferred by law on county and district
attorneys in the various counties and districts."
