West Virginia District Attorneys Overview
A District Attorney (DA) is the prosecuting officer of a criminal case (i.e., the official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal offenses). DAs have a number of important tasks including reading police reports, deciding whether or not to charge a person with a criminal offense, litigating cases in a courtroom, conducting jury trials, recommending sentences, and even writing appellate briefs. On top of all of this, many DAs find themselves reaching out to their communities to conduct seminars to help educate the public on matters such a crime prevention, victim assistance, and more.
