Iowa District Attorneys

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

When a suspect is arrested by the police, they're processed and often then released on bail (unless they're considered dangerous or a flight risk). If the district attorney in the district where the crime allegedly occurred decides they have enough evidence, they'll file formal criminal charges. Sometimes, depending on the nature of the offense and state procedures, a grand jury will decide whether charges are filed.

The district attorney is a powerful position, since they decide who gets charged and how. If you're facing criminal charges, you'll want to get a handle on how they operate and may want to contact them (to negotiate a plea deal, for example). However, you also want to avoid showing your hand and revealing your defense strategy. In any event, it's usually best to follow a criminal defense attorney's advice.

In Iowa, District Attorneys are referred to as "County Attorneys." The following is a directory of Iowa County Attorneys.
