Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater said he will not seek re-election after this current term.

Prater said he will retire at the end of his term in January 2023. He will have served 16 years as Oklahoma County's district attorney.

"After the filing period in April of 2018, when I learned that I would not have an opponent, I decided that I would retire after completing my current term. My retirement date is January 2023. At that time, I will have served 16 years as the elected district attorney. That’s long enough," Prater told News 9.

Prater was a law officer at the Cleveland County Sheriff's Office and the Norman Police Department before earning his law degree from the University of Oklahoma.

From 1993 to 2001, he served as an assistant district attorney under Bob Macy and as an assistant attorney general in the grand jury unit under Attorney General Drew Edmondson. Prater also maintained a private practice in Oklahoma City before being elected as district attorney.
