About the Prosecutor's Office

The Office of the Prosecuting Attorney is authorized under Chapter 309 of the Ohio Revised Code to “inquire into the commission of crimes within the county. The prosecuting attorney shall prosecute, on behalf of the state, all complaints, suits and controversies in which the state is a party…and other suits, matters, and controversies that the prosecuting attorney is required to prosecute within or outside the county in the probate court, court of common pleas, and court of appeals. In conjunction with the attorney general, the prosecuting attorney shall prosecute in the supreme court cases airing in the prosecuting attorney’s county…” In short, our office has the responsibility to prosecute all felony, misdemeanor, criminal, and traffic offenses that occur in the county where sufficient proof exists to establish and maintain those criminal cases beyond a reasonable doubt. This includes offenses committed by adults and by juveniles.
