Montana District Attorneys

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

A District Attorney (D.A.) is the prosecuting officer of a criminal case, representing the state within their respective district (typically comprised of one or more counties). In Montana, D.A.s are known as "County Attorneys." The main County Attorney in each jurisdiction is an elected official who represents the People of the State of Montana against persons or entities alleged to have committed criminal offenses.

Deputy County Attorneys work for the elected County Attorney and are responsible for the prosecution of all felony and misdemeanor crimes occurring within their county.

Montana County Attorney's Role in Sentencing

In a criminal case, a judge (not a jury) renders a sentence against a criminal defendant upon conviction or entering a plea. The County Attorney's role in this process is to present the judge with information, including victim testimony, to help persuade the judge to pass down a specific sentence. The judge will consider the information in a pre-sentence report prepared by the probation department, any additional evidence offered by the County Attorney or criminal defense lawyer, comments by the crime victim's family, and other relevant information.

Montana Attorney General's Office

The top legal official in the state is the Montana Attorney General (or "A.G."). The A.G. represents the state in matters of litigation and also enforces laws meant to protect consumers in the state, among other duties.
