WELCOME TO THE OFFICIAL WEBSITE FOR THE OFFICE OF THE PROSECUTING ATTORNEY FOR NOBLE COUNTY

The role of the Prosecuting Attorney is to see that the laws of the State of Indiana are faithfully executed and enforced. We represent the community as we prosecute violations of State laws that occur within Noble County. In promoting public safety, we work closely with law enforcement and other agencies to reduce crime, protect innocent victims, and enhance the quality of life in our county.

Our primary responsibility is to protect the public’s safety through the prosecution of criminal violations, both adult and juvenile. In this regard, our focus is on seeking justice. Sometimes this is accomplished by aggressively seeking the punishment and incapacitation of violent, repeat offenders within our community. Other times, the ends of justice may best be served by seeking a resolution to a violation that balances accountability with a meaningful opportunity for rehabilitation.

In addition to our main Criminal Division, the Office of the Prosecuting Attorney provides a variety of additional services to the community. The Child Support Division assists parents in establishing paternity, obtaining child support, and enforcing child support orders against delinquent parents. Our Victim Assistant aids those who have been victims of crime through access to information and services. In certain cases, we also offer Pre-Trial Diversion, Infraction Deferral, and the Bad Check Program, which addresses accountability for improper conduct without using scarce judicial resources.

It is my commitment to provide the citizens of Noble County with an accessible and accountable Office that maintains a high level of personal integrity, ethics, and professionalism; cooperates with public and outside agencies in a supportive manner; treats others with fairness and sensitivity; and is fiscally responsible.
