Meet Bill Gladson

I am a native Floridian, career prosecutor, and former law enforcement officer. My primary mission as State Attorney is public safety. During my 20 years as an Assistant State Attorney, I prosecuted crimes ranging from misdemeanors to capital murders. Since being elected State Attorney, our circuit has consistently ranked among the top circuits in the entire state for sending violent and repeat offenders to prison. I also believe that first time non-violent offenders, when appropriate, should be given a second chance. Fortunately, the Fifth Circuit boasts a variety of diversion programs for both adult and juvenile offenders. As a result, our office routinely diverts cases from the traditional prosecution path into pre-trial intervention programs. We also participate in a variety of pre and post adjudicatory diversion programs such as drug court, veterans court, and mental health court, just to name a few. By focusing our resources on punishing violent criminals, while simultaneously diverting many first time, non-violent offenders out the system, we help build a safer community for everyone.
