District Attorney

  • County Court

The mission of the Office of the District Attorney is to promote justice and protect the people of the 19th Judicial District (Jackson, George and Greene County ) by aggressively prosecuting criminals and holding them accountable for their actions. The District Attorney is elected to a four year term and is responsible for the prosecution of all felonies committed within the 19th District. The DA's office on average handles between 2500-3500 criminal cases per year.

Along with case work, the DA’s Office has established three programs with three very different objectives- A Worthless Check Unit, Pre-Trial Diversion Program and Victim Support Services.
