Attorney General Ken Paxton announced today that Josh Reno, a graduate of Texas Tech School of Law, will serve as assistant attorney general for criminal justice. Mr. Reno served as assistant district attorney in Williamson and Lubbock Counties. During his tenure as a prosecutor, he made a record of outstanding litigation and was named a district attorney for the Lubbock County District Attorney in 2010.
