The District Attorney or "D.A." (also referred to as the "prosecuting attorney" or "prosecutor") is the chief lawyer of their respective district. They represent the state and file criminal charges in their jurisdiction, convening grand juries when warranted or required by procedural law. Nebraska District Attorneys are officially called "County Attorneys" and there's one for each county in the state.

Speaking With a Nebraska County Attorney
It may be necessary to speak to the prosecution in order to request a plea agreement, to try to get charges dropped, or to learn more about the case against you. In some instances, it could be beneficial to learn how the prosecutor is handling your case. However, some prosecutors won't speak to a defendant (they'll speak to your attorney) and in all jurisdictions a defendant should think carefully before speaking to the D.A.
However, your communication could have negative results if you inadvertently reveal information or fail to properly represent yourself. In other words, revealing too much about your defense strategy could backfire.
