This office does not offer legal opinions to private individuals, nor do we provide opinions to private parties in civil matters.   The County Attorney is only authorized to prosecute criminal matters and represent the County.  The County Attorney’s office cannot represent private individuals or give legal advice.

The County Attorney’s Office does not investigate crimes.  Investigations are conducted by law enforcement officers such as the police department or sheriff’s department.  The police and sheriff gather evidence (e.g. statements from witnesses, fingerprints, drug tests, ballistic tests) and submit the evidence to the County Attorney for review and a charging decision.
