About the Commonwealth's Attorney Office

The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office is responsible for prosecuting all felony and certain misdemeanor offenses which occur within the jurisdiction of Chesterfield County.  As of May 1, 2018, due to staffing shortages, in the General District Court we will assign a prosecutor to DUI cases, cases involving animals, misdemeanor sexual offender registry violations, cases we have previously made an appearance on prior to May 1, 2018, felony cases, and cases related to other cases we are handling. We will handle all cases in Circuit Court.


Other Duties include 

  • Providing additional services to inform citizens about our criminal justice system.
  • Representing the county’s interest in the forfeiture of defendants’ assets in drug-related crimes.
  • Working closely with police officers and magistrates to provide 24-hour-a-day legal advice.
  • Teaching at the Police Academy and conduct mock trials to educate state and local law enforcement personnel.
  • Contributing each year to the county’s legislative package in the areas of criminal law and procedure.
