MARK HUDDLESTON HAS THE EXPERIENCE
Mark has dedicated himself exclusively to criminal prosecution since 1980. He served as the county’s first deputy district attorney assigned exclusively to cases of child abuse. He has personally prosecuted numerous jury trials, from misdemeanors to aggravated murder. Mark supervises an office of 38 employees, including 15 attorneys.

MARK HUDDLESTON IS A PROVEN LEADER
Mark has earned the respect of his colleagues in the criminal justice system. He is a past chair of the county’s drug enforcement task force and was the first president of the local Public Safety Coordinating Council. Retired Medford police chief Ray Shipley and numerous other current and retired law enforcement officers endorse Mark.

Since first elected District Attorney in 1992, Mark has instituted innovative programs that improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the criminal justice system. Violation treatment for some first-time misdemeanor offenders saves taxpayers the expense of court-appointed attorneys and jury trials, while allowing prosecutors to concentrate on more serious cases. The District Attorney’s Domestic Violence Response Team works with local police and victims of domestic assault to hold batterers accountable for their crimes. Mark played a pivotal role in the creation of the Children’s Advocacy Center and is a past Board president.
