Morvant sworn in to third term as Lafourche Parish District Attorney

Camille A. Morvant, II was sworn in for his third term as Lafourche Parish District Attorney Friday morning, December 5.

Morvant, who officially begins his third six-year term on January 1, 2015, was sworn in by the Hon. John E. LeBlanc, chief judge for the 17th Judicial District Court, at a ceremony held at the District Attorney’s Office.

“I am both humbled and honored to again have the privilege of serving the people of Lafourche Parish as District Attorney,” Morvant said. “We have accomplished much in our first twelve years in office, but we will always keep working hard to make Lafourche a better place to live.”

Morvant was first elected District Attorney in 2002 and returned to office in 2008 without opposition. Morvant again had no opposition for the office this year.

Morvant, a lifelong resident of Lafourche, first joined the District Attorney’s office in 1983. As an Assistant District Attorney, he was the Chief Prosecutor, responsible for all of the major felony trials in the parish. He also was the primary prosecutor for all child abuse cases as well.

Morvant, a 1982 graduate of the LSU Law School, also attended Nicholls State University, obtaining his undergraduate degree in 1971 and a master’s degree in education in 1979. He is a 1967 graduate of E.D.White Catholic High School.

The son of Elaine “Pickles” Toups Morvant and the late Robert Morvant, Cam is also the grandson of former Lafourche Parish District Attorney Camille A. Morvant. He has two children, Melissa Michelle Morvant and Camille A. “Trey” Morvant, III, and a step daughter, Samantha Folse. He is married to Dana Crochet.
