The Criminal Prosecution Division prosecutes adults and juveniles for criminal conduct. This is the District Attorney's primary function. This function includes advising police regarding criminal procedure and search warrants, grand jury investigations, the evaluation of police referrals and charging of appropriate cases. We prepare and negotiate cases and go to trial on approximately 10% of the cases. Josephine County is fortunate to have a Child Advocacy and Treatment Center where children who are victims of sexual and physical abuse are interviewed and treated. We also participate in a Drug Court program designed to intervene and treat qualifying drug addicts.
