The Teton County Office of the Prosecuting Attorney works diligently in the pursuit of justice while protecting our community. We prosecute all felony, misdemeanor and infraction violations of state and county law that occur within Teton County and that are brought by state or county law enforcement. This includes violent and non-violent offenses. We also prosecute city ordinances pursuant to a contract with the City of Victor. Our attorneys work closely with the Teton County Sheriff’s Office, the Idaho State Police, Idaho Fish and Game, and other state and federal law enforcement agencies to build cases and prosecute the offenders. We also handle certain appeals of criminal convictions and petitions for post-conviction relief.
In addition to cases involving adult perpetrators, the Teton County Office of the Prosecuting Attorney also handles juvenile matters in the County. This includes cases where juveniles commit misdemeanor and felony crimes, but also offenses such as truancy, runaway and beyond-control-of-parent. In many cases, our attorneys work to get juvenile offenders into Teton County’s Juvenile Diversion Program and collaborate closely with the Juvenile Probation Department to help get the juvenile the guidance, rehabilitation, and support that they need. We also collaborate closely with the Attorney General’s Office to prosecute child protection cases.
In the civil realm, the Teton County Office of the Prosecuting Attorney provides civil legal counsel to the Board of County Commissioners, the Sheriff, the Treasurer, the Clerk, the Assessor, the Coroner, and other county department heads and employees. This includes researching and drafting legal memoranda and opinions, negotiating and preparing contracts, preparing ordinances and resolutions, advising officials on personnel matters, and drafting and reviewing findings of fact and conclusions of law in administrative board proceedings. We also handle administrative appeals and warrants, prosecute involuntary mental commitments, and defend the County against lawsuits for damages and other relief.
