Harris County judge newest member of Judicial Advisory Council

A Harris County district court judge joined the Judicial Advisory Council in January.

Judge Caprice Cosper represents the state’s largest judicial district on the 12-member council which advises the Texas Board of Criminal Justice and TDCJ’s Community Justice Assistance Division. An honors graduate of the University of Houston Law Center, Cosper worked as a trial and appellate prosecutor before being named judge of the 339th Criminal District Court in January 1993.

“I’m delighted to have Judge Cosper join the Judicial Advisory Council,” said Judge Larry Gist, chairman of the JAC and senior criminal court judge from Beaumont. “She is a leader not only in the judiciary but also in community corrections and will make major contributions to the state criminal justice system.”

Judge Cosper co-founded the State Ad Hoc Committee to draft legislation reforming the capital murder process and was named Judge of the Year for 2004 by the Criminal Justice Section of the State Bar of Texas.
