Harrington had 57 percent of the votes in Tuesday’s Primary Election. Challenger Earl McCoy had 43 percent.

Harrington has been the prosecutor for the last 11 years. Throughout his campaign, he stood by the decisions he has made regarding filing charges. He also stands behind the cases he didn't file.

It was certainly a contentious race. Harrington has criticized McCoy's years of tax issues and McCoy has been critical of the Darius Printup trial. Printup was acquitted in the murder of Lafayette art teacher Kristi Redmon.


There were not any Democrats running for prosecutor.
