The primary role of our office is to prosecute criminal acts that occur within Tooele County as well as providing “civil” legal support to Tooele County.  Our office is comprised of deputy county attorneys and support staff.  We provide legal counsel to Tooele County in all matters that come before the County Council and provide legal support to the various branches of County government.  We also receive assistance from a Court Victim Advocate who supports victims as they navigate the criminal justice system.

We prosecute all felony cases and juvenile cases in Tooele County as well as the misdemeanor cases occurring outside the municipal boundaries of the cities within Tooele County.  These cases range from traffic violations to homicides.  Our objective is swift and fair justice while providing critical services to crime victims and their families.

The County Attorney’s Office supports the Tooele County Drug Court Program and oversees the Children’s Justice Center.  We also work closely with all law enforcement agencies in Tooele County and appreciate the professionalism and concern for our community that we see exhibited by officers on a daily basis.

I welcome your questions, concerns, and suggestions and very much appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
