State Inspector General
Stephen B. Street, Jr.



On January 4, 2008, Governor Bobby Jindal appointed Mr. Street as the third State Inspector General. The Office's mission is to help prevent waste, mismanagement, abuse, fraud, and corruption in the executive branch of state government without regard to partisan politics, allegiances, status or influence.

Mr. Street received his law degree in 1989 from the Paul M. Hebert Law Center at Louisiana State University. The bulk of his years as a practicing attorney have been spent in the field of criminal law at the state and federal levels, first as a criminal staff lawyer with the Third Circuit Court of Appeal in Lake Charles, Louisiana, and then later both defending and prosecuting serious criminal cases. Mr. Street spent four years with the East Baton Rouge Parish Public Defender, during which he gained extensive experience as lead trial counsel in a wide variety of cases, including capital murder, second-degree murder, and Federal RICO.

From 2000 until his appointment as Inspector General, Mr. Street exclusively handled white-collar prosecutions as the Section Chief of the Louisiana Attorney General’s Insurance Fraud Support Unit. This unit remains part of a multi-agency task force devoted to investigation and prosecution of all types of insurance fraud in Louisiana. Investigations/prosecutions handled by the unit ranged from basic claims fraud to multi-defendant insurance fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy cases.

Mr. Street also served as the Attorney General’s Agency Representative to the National White Collar Crime Center (NW3C), and was as an Instructor for the NW3C. He taught courses on Financial Investigation Practical Skills (FIPS), and Financial Records Examination and Analysis (FREA) offered to law enforcement throughout the United States. Additionally, he served on faculty for Louisiana District Attorneys Association (LDAA) conferences for prosecutors and judges, and as a speaker for numerous professional organizations and civic groups on insurance fraud issues. He provided training on prosecution of insurance fraud for Orleans and Jefferson Parish District Attorney’s Offices.

He has worked extensively with the Louisiana Department of Labor to investigate and prosecute worker’s compensation fraud cases, and has given presentations on investigation and prosecution of worker’s compensation fraud to the Louisiana Association of Self Insured Employers (LASIE) and the Louisiana Office of Risk Management.

Mr. Street was admitted to Louisiana State Bar Association on October 6, 1989, and the Texas State Bar Association on November 1, 1991. He has also been admitted to all United States District Courts in Louisiana. In addition to his law degree, he received a Bachelor of Arts degree in News Editorial Journalism from Louisiana State University on August 7, 1986.

He is married with four children, and serves as worship leader for The Chapel in Baton Rouge.
