Governor Roy Cooper today named District Attorney Robert A. Evans of the Seventh Judicial District as the new chairman of the Governor’s Crime Commission.
“District Attorney Evans will bring deep knowledge of the justice system and law enforcement along with even-handed judgment to guide the 44 members of the Crime Commission,” Cooper said. “I’m grateful that D.A. Evans is willing to take on this challenging and crucial role on behalf of our state.”
Evans has been the district attorney for Nash, Edgecombe and Wilson counties since 2009. He served as a District Court judge from 1999 to 2008. Prior to that time, he maintained a general law practice in Rocky Mount that focused on trial and appellate work.
