The Criminal Division is responsible for performing the primary duty of the Noble County Prosecutor’s Office - to protect the public’s safety through the prosecution of criminal violations. The Prosecuting Attorney and his Deputies represent the State of Indiana in all criminal prosecutions.  Whether the case involves a juvenile alleged to have engaged in delinquent acts, or an adult alleged to have engaged in criminal acts, only the Prosecuting Attorney may bring an action in a court of law and obtain a criminal conviction and sentence.

As the only law enforcement officer in Noble County able to file charges, the Prosecuting Attorney reviews the work product of the various local law enforcement agencies and assists them with legal support where needed for the purpose of determining if criminal behavior has occurred and whether formal charges should be filed.

The Criminal Division reviews, initiates, and performs all tasks necessary to formally prosecute criminal cases arising within the jurisdiction of Noble County, Indiana.  In representing the citizens of Noble County, the Prosecuting Attorney and his associates seek justice based upon concerns for community safety and well-being, balanced against the responsible utilization of public resources.

Our staff works tirelessly to promote the fair, impartial, and expeditious administration of justice.  Performing the tasks necessary to hold offenders accountable requires trained professional Deputy Prosecutors dedicated to the relentless pursuit of justice and tempered by principles of reasonableness appropriate to the circumstances in each individual case. We are committed to maintaining a high level of personal integrity, ethics, and professionalism in performing our duties.
