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

A district attorney (D.A.) is the official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal offenses. District attorneys are essentially lawyers whose job it is to represent the people of the state against persons or entities accused of criminal activity. In North Dakota, district attorneys are called "state's attorneys" and they're divided by county.

The Role of a North Dakota District Attorney

Once a suspect is arrested by law enforcement, it's the job of the prosecutor to decide whether or not to file charges based upon the evidence in the case. Once the prosecutor makes a determination, it's their job to continue researching the case, appearing in court, and ultimately getting a conviction or plea from the defendant.

If the case goes to a criminal trial, and the prosecutor gains a conviction against the defendant, it will be their job to present a sentencing recommendation to the judge. Depending on the nature of the crime, this may also include presenting testimony of a victims or family members of the victim(s) to speak to the judge regarding the impact of the crime.
