The Law Offices of Richard C. McConathy | Wise County

Wise County has a tradition of being tough on crime. The county’s Wise Eyes crime prevention program, implemented in 1993 by famed three-term Sheriff Phil Ryan, was adopted by multiple rural communities throughout Texas as well as other states.

With U.S. Highway 287, U.S. Highway 380, Texas State Highway 101, and Texas State Highway 114 all running through Wise County, law enforcement also arrests many drivers nowadays for driving while intoxicated (DWI). The Romanesque architecture of the J. Riely Gordon-designed Wise County Courthouse helped the Decatur building get added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1976, but it can be hard for people entering the structure to appreciate that beauty when they are there to face criminal charges.
