West Virginia 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, filing charges on behalf of the state within their district (typically one or more counties). Prosecutors have a number of important tasks including reading police reports, deciding whether to charge a person with a criminal offense, litigating cases in court, conducting jury trials, recommending sentences, and even writing appellate briefs. On top of all of this, many D.A.s find themselves reaching out to their communities to conduct seminars to help educate the public on matters such a crime prevention, victim assistance, and more.

West Virginia's District Attorneys are referred to as "Prosecuting Attorneys." If you're involved in a criminal case, there may be instances where it makes sense to contact the prosecutor, such as negotiating a plea deal before trial. However, it's always best to follow your attorney's advice and counsel. Learn more about West Virginia Prosecuting Attorneys below.
