District Attorneys

District attorneys are the elected representatives of the state in all criminal and some juvenile matters. The primary responsibility of the district attorney, with his or her assistants, is to prosecute all criminal cases filed in the Superior and District Courts. District attorneys also advise local law enforcement and prepare the criminal trial docket. Each district has at least four full-time assistant district attorneys. The district attorney and the assistant district attorneys are paid by the state and are not allowed to have their own private practice of law.
