DA Watkins Crashing Cars and Silencing His Victims Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Thu, Aug 21, 2014, 01:09 AM

Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins, a Democrat, has become a public menace when driving his car. Additionally, he's been implicated in numerous traffic accidents and has engaged in bullying behavior when confronting his alleged victims, by asking them, "do you know who I am?" immediately after a crash occurs.

The Dallas Morning News reports that, "The driver who was rear-ended last year by Dallas County District Attorney Craig Watkins may have blacked out briefly because of the impact of the crash, the man’s lawyer said Wednesday. Attorney Jim Jinks said his client was driving the speed limit north on the Dallas North Tollway the morning of Feb. 5, 2013, when the district attorney hit his car from behind."

In the aftermath of D.A. Watkins driving mayhem, those who have been victimized by his car wrecks are forced to sign "silence" agreements in order to receive any cash payouts to settle their claims.

According to the Dallas Morning News, "The lawyer’s account is among the most detailed public accounts of the crash, which has recently gained attention amid questions about how Watkins and his office handled its aftermath. Jinks and his client filed a claim against the county soon after the crash. The case was settled through mediation, and Watkins’ office paid $47,500 out of its forfeiture fund. One of the requirements of the agreement was that Jinks’ client not discuss the matter publicly."

Debbie Denmon, A spokeswoman for D.A. Watkins, continues to insist that her boss has done nothing improper.
