The primary function of the St. Joseph County Prosecutor's Office is to prosecute individuals charged with committing crimes in St. Joseph County. Law enforcement agencies investigate crimes and turn the results of their investigations over to our office. If sufficient evidence exists to prove that an identified suspect committed the crime, our office charges the suspect and prosecutes the case. If a defendant is convicted of committing the crime, he or she will be sentenced by a judge.
In addition to prosecuting criminal offenses, this office assists custodial parents with child support collection, and assists crime victims with finding resources to help them rebuild their lives. The team in this office includes deputy prosecuting attorneys, paralegals, investigators, child support caseworkers, victim advocates, and support staff. Together we all work toward a common goal: making St. Joseph County a better place to live and raise a family.
My top priority is public safety. Working together with law enforcement agencies throughout St. Joseph County, I am committed to protecting everyone in our community, especially children and seniors. We will cooperate with residents, police, and other government leaders to improve our communities and make St. Joseph County a model for other Indiana counties.
