GEORGETOWN — John Bradley says he is evolving.
A supremely confident and legendarily tough Texas prosecutor, Mr. Bradley says he is learning some of the most important — and humbling — lessons of his 24-year career. It is a painful process, he says. It is also highly public.
"I have been through a series of events that deeply challenged me," Mr. Bradley, the Williamson County district attorney, said during an extended interview. "I recognized that I could be angry, resentful and react to people, or I could look for the overall purpose and lesson and apply it to not only my own professional life but teach it. And I chose the latter path."
