Judge De Leon Re-sets Eviction and Criminal Misdemeanor Plea Dockets until after the Easter Holiday.  

Judge Sergio L. De Leon

Judge Sergio DeLeon

Judge De Leon’s vision of serving both the court and the community has become a working reality. Soon after taking office he formed a partnership with what was then called the TWU Law School and hired a legal intern; a first for Justice of the Peace Courts in Tarrant County. Additionally, he held the first-ever Precinct 5 Justice of the Peace and Constable Town Hall Meeting to address a new Judicial Complex to better serve the growing needs of the Precinct 5 community. Moreover, Judge De Leon forged a partnership with FWISD Schools and initiated the “Honorary Jurors Program” which invites students from area schools to serve as honorary jurors and observe court proceedings. The program has been a tremendous success and has been featured in the Fort Worth Star Telegram and the Texas Association of Counties, County Magazine.
