Richard Roper Quoted in The Dallas Morning News on New U.S. Attorney

“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.
