Prosecuting Attorney's Office

The Prosecuting Attorney's Office prosecutes infraction and misdemeanor offenses occurring within the City limits under State and local codes that are investigated by the Coeur d'Alene Police Department or code enforcement agents.

Our office practices vertical prosecution which means that one prosecuting attorney is assigned to a case from start to finish.  We assign cases to our prosecutors by alphabetical assignment of defendants' last names.
