District Attorney

The District Attorney is the public prosecutor in Inyo County.  The District Attorney works with law enforcement partners to review reports of alleged criminal activity, file cases in court, and prosecute cases to verdict and sentencing.

In the words of the United States Supreme Court:

The prosecutor “is the representative not of any ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all; and whose interest, therefore, in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done.  As such, he [or she] is in a peculiar and very definite sense the servant of the law, the two-fold aim of which is that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer.”    Berger v. United States (1935) 295 U.S. 78.
