Bo Duhé made it official today that he is running for District Attorney in the 16th Judicial District this fall. The district is comprised of St. Martin, Iberia and St. Mary Parishes.
Duhé, age 51, is a lifelong resident of New Iberia and has served as an Assistant District Attorney since 1993.
For the past six years Bo has served as the First Assistant District Attorney. In that role, he has been responsible for the administration, personnel and overall operations of the District Attorney's Office, in addition to his role in the prosecution of felony crimes.
Duhé also was a Law Clerk for Honorable Robert Fleming, where he reviewed and summarized legal pleadings submitted to the court.
Before graduating from Tulane University Law School in 1992, Duhé was an Assistant Vice President for a financial institution.
"My experience in banking and finance has proven to be an asset in my role as First Assistant District Attorney," said Duhé. "Working with a budget and staff of professionals over a three parish district requires knowledge of budget process, administration, internal operations and the law. The people and communities of the 16th Judicial District have come to expect a District Attorney's office that is proficient in its operations."
Duhé is a highly respected prosecutor with a reputation of always being prepared, committed and dedicated to working hard to reach a fair and reasonable decision. All are character traits learned from his parents and mentors along the way. Bo also prides himself in being responsive to law enforcement and accessible to victims and their families.
Bo and his wife, the former Lisa Claire Trahan, have three children, Sean, Michele and Mac. Bo is the son of John Malcolm Duhé, Jr, who was a local attorney and later became a state and then a federal judge until his retirement. His mother, Dawn Hébert, was an active community leader in New Iberia and is currently a grant writer. Bo is a graduate of Catholic High School, New Iberia, received his BA degree in Business from USL and earned his Juris Doctorate from Tulane University Law School in 1992.
