Mark Gonzalez has announced a new bureau to handle domestic violence cases after admitting he has failed in handling the cases since being elected as the Nueces County District Attorney.    

Gonzalez made the announcement during a Friday morning press conference on the first floor on the Nueces County Courthouse.

While campaigning for District Attorney, Gonzalez promised to educate first time domestic violence offenders.

Meanwhile, KRIS 6 News has obtained documents show that, since Gonzalez took office, most of those cases were dismissed without the defendant going through a pre-trial diversion program, meant to educate domestic violence offenders.

Stay tuned to KRIS 6 News for more on this developing story.
