State-level criminal charges are filed by the District Attorney (or D.A.)'s Office where the crime occurred, typically comprised of one or more counties. Depending on the procedures and laws of the state, certain criminal charges may require an indictment from a grand jury. There is one Pennsylvania District Attorney's Office for each of the state's counties and the City of Philadelphia.

Pennsylvania Attorney General's Office
While the D.A.s file criminal cases on behalf of the state within their respective district (or county), the Pennsylvania Attorney General (A.G.) represents the state as a whole in litigation matters (i.e. when the state sues another entity for violations against its residents). The A.G. is considered the state's top prosecutor and law enforcement official.
