Indiana District Attorneys

Created by FindLaw's team of attorney writers and editors.

A district attorney is responsible for prosecuting crimes that occur in their district. While states have different names for a district attorney, the function is the same. In Indiana, district attorneys are referred to as prosecutors and every county in Indiana has a prosecutor.

The Role of the Prosecuting Attorney

Prosecutors in Indiana are provided for in the state constitution. They're elected for each judicial circuit and hold their office for four years. While not specifically a county prosecutor, since they are elected to represent a judicial circuit, each county will have a designated prosecutor.

The prosecutor is responsible for enforcing the laws of the State of Indiana and will prosecute felony and misdemeanor crimes committed within their county. They conduct criminal investigations and convene grand jury proceedings. They may also prosecute infractions, traffic violations, and juvenile prosecutions.

The Role of the Grand Jury

A grand jury isn't always convened and isn't necessary to proceed with criminal charges. However, it can be a powerful investigative tool for the prosecution. A grand jury can issue subpoenas to gather documentary evidence and question witnesses. The main purpose is to determine whether criminal charges will be brought. The standard of proof is far lower than the "beyond a shadow of doubt" that the prosecution needs to prove at an accused's criminal trial. All a grand jury needs to find is that there is probable cause to support criminal charges.

The Indiana Attorney General

The Attorney General (A.G.) is the chief legal officer for the people of Indiana. The A.G. is responsible for protecting the public interest. It litigates on behalf of the state bringing both criminal and civil lawsuits. It also has advocacy programs to protect consumers and the environment, promote the protection of children, and help crime victims.
