“Lawyer with cybersecurity expertise primed to become Dallas’ new U.S. attorney”
Dallas’ likely new top federal prosecutor brings with her a career battling cybercrime.
That happens to be one of the fastest-growing and most damaging crimes in Texas and across the nation. Which is why those in the criminal justice in North Texas think Erin Nealy Cox is a good pick to lead the office.
Richard Roper, another former U.S. attorney in Dallas, called Cox a “brilliant lawyer” who is “tough but fair.”
He said she helped prosecute some of the office’s first cybercrime cases.
