Lehigh Valley Criminal Defense Attorney Tom Carroll will launch his campaign for Northampton County district attorney on Thursday, according to a news release.

The former assistant district attorney said his candidacy is supported by the 9-12 Project of the Lehigh Valley. He campaigned for President Trump in 2016 in Allentown.
