Twitterholics, you don't want to mess with Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon (MontgomeryTXDAO) of Conroe, Texas. Ligon is taking on criminals by shaming them on Twitter. Take November 4, for example, when he tweeted, "Andres Canceco indicted by GJ in I-45 fatal crash. Canseco killed Jan Bennett by driving the wrong way and being intoxicated."

The Twitter tactic Brett Ligon (MontgomeryTXDAO) has chosen to follow is quite unusual, but the county hopes that this bit of very public shaming is enough to be a crime deterrent. What do you think? Stats for Shaming Criminals on Twitter Trending: Older & Chilly
