Judge Jeff Cox qualified today as a candidate for the Second Circuit Court of Appeal. Judge Cox has been re-elected twice without opposition as a District Judge in Bossier and Webster Parishes. These two parishes comprise a majority of the votes in the Second Circuit race. The other seven parishes include: Bienville, Caldwell, Claiborne, Jackson, Lincoln, Union, and Winn.
A Republican with broad support from the law enforcement community, Judge Cox understands the concerns expressed by law enforcement and the broader community about criminals being released from jail and felony sentences being reversed. “I am honored to have such strong support of people from every walk of life—especially our law enforcement officers,” Cox said. Judge Cox is the only candidate in the race with courtroom experience as a prosecutor and trial judge. He favors strict interpretation of the Constitution and is opposed to legislating from the bench.
Judge Cox continues to be a strong advocate for the elderly, and he supports Second Amendment rights.
Judge Cox, a native of Webster Parish, resides in Bossier City with his wife, Susan, and their children: Gabrielle and Stephen, who are students at Louisiana Tech University. Judge Cox serves as deacon and teacher at First Baptist Church Bossier and is a member of a number of civic and wildlife organizations.
