Criminal Division

Our office is primarily responsible for the prosecution of all felony, misdemeanor and juvenile offenses committed within Gila County.  The office receives referrals from eight law enforcement agencies, including the San Carlos Apache Tribe and the Tonto Apache Tribe, who conduct investigations of criminal conducts and refer the cases to this office for prosecution.  Our team of twelve full and part-time criminal prosecutors, (including the County Attorney), five detectives, fourteen legal secretaries and three victim advocates work hard to ensure that criminals are held accountable for the crimes they commit and that crime victims’ rights are honored and respected throughout the prosecution of any matter.
