Criminal Director Brandon Fremin Receives Presidential Nomination

AG Jeff Landry Applauds Fremin for His Service to LADOJ

BATON ROUGE, LA – Attorney General Jeff Landry applauded President Trump’s nomination of Louisiana Department of Justice (LADOJ) Criminal Director Brandon Fremin as U.S. Attorney for the Middle District.

“President Trump’s nomination of Brandon Fremin is a grand slam homerun. Brandon has truly lived a life of public service, both as a Marine and a prosecutor,” said General Landry. “Brandon has been a tremendous asset to our office; and I am confident that he will lead the U.S. Attorney’s Office in a fair, ethical, and honest way.”

In January 2016, Fremin was hired to serve the Criminal Director for General Landry’s office where he oversees several sections including: general prosecutions, insurance fraud, and the award-winning Medicaid Fraud Control Unit. Under his watch, over 15 public officials have been arrested for public corruption charges – many of whom are currently being prosecuted by the LADOJ.

A native of Baton Rouge, Fremin (43) is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps. He earned his bachelor’s degree with honors in Criminal Justice from Southeastern Louisiana University and his law degree from the Louisiana State University Law Center.
Fremin previously served 11 years in the 19th Judicial District Court’s District Attorney Office as an investigator and a prosecutor before accepting an appointment as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Middle District of Louisiana, where he prosecuted drug trafficking, crimes of violence, and immigration matters. He later returned to the District Attorney’s Office as a Section Chief while maintaining a designation as Special Assistant United States Attorney.

“Under my administration, our office has created a strong partnership with our federal partners; and we look forward to continuing this with Brandon in leadership,”
concluded General Landry. “Brandon will continue to help make Louisiana an even better place to live, work, and raise our families. I hope he is quickly confirmed by the Senate.”

Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
