Before becoming Dallas County district attorney in 2019, John Creuzot spent more than 20 years as a felony judge. Since taking office, he has focused on relaxing marijuana prosecution and reducing mass incarceration.

As part of our regular Screen Time feature, we will examine how some of the most powerful people in North Texas interact with technology.

Here's how Creuzot clicks:

Device of choice: Android, despite my son's teasing.

First tap of the day: I check my texts and then check my news apps.

Go-to news sources: the New York Times, the Dallas Morning News and my Google News app.

On rotation: I listen to '60s and '70s soul and rock 'n' roll. I like the Classic Vinyl station on my satellite car radio.

Podcast of choice: I prefer watching old speeches on YouTube. I've nearly run out of JFK.

Most used app: Probably the New York Times.

Reading list: I enjoy existentialism in literature. I just finished reading "The Great Dissenter: The Story of John Marshall Harlan".

  • I read a lot of legal history, Supreme Court history and WWII history.
  • My favorite short book is "San Manuel Bueno, Mártir" by Miguel de Unamuno.
  • Kafka is also a favorite.
