Ohio District Attorneys

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

A District Attorney (D.A.) is the prosecuting officer of a criminal case (i.e., the official who represents the government in the prosecution of criminal offenses). The office of the D.A. (or prosecutor) where a crime is alleged to have occurred will decide whether to file criminal charges. Sometimes charges are filed after a grand jury is convened in order to examine the evidence; other times, charges are levied through the "information" filed by the prosecutor.

Contacting a district attorney can be a dangerous proposition. On the one hand, it may be necessary in order to secure a favorable plea agreement or to convince them that charges should be reduced or dropped altogether. On the other hand, the prosecutor is your opponent and communications with the prosecution must be carefully considered to avoid revealing your defense strategy or making admissions that could worsen your situation.

In Ohio, District Attorneys are simply referred to as prosecuting attorneys. The following directory will help you get in touch with your local prosecutor.
