The Mifflin County Office of the District Attorney is dedicated to achieving justice and protecting the safety of our own community. We are committed to enforcing the law by investigating and aggressively prosecuting criminal activity throughout Mifflin County. We seek justice in our courts, recommend appropriate punishment for those who commit crimes, and provide competent assistance to victims of crime. In doing so, we ensure that justice is done in a fair, effective and efficient manner. We maintain positive partnerships with law enforcement and community organizations so that we can achieve our goal of making Mifflin County a safe and secure place to live and work, and in doing so, earn the trust and respect of those citizens we are privileged and honored to serve.
The District Attorney is the chief law enforcement officer for the county in which he is elected. He prosecutes all criminal cases as representative of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The District Attorney or his designee may appear and assume the prosecution of any summary case or preliminary hearing at the magistrate level. Once charges are bound over to the Court of Common Pleas, the District Attorney assumes the prosecution of the case until the case is resolved through a plea, acceptance into the ARD Program, bench or jury trial or dismissal of charges. No case can be withdrawn from prosecution without the approval of the District Attorney.
