counties, there is no county attorney, so an elected criminal district
attorney performs the duties of county attorney. These duties vary
depending on whether the county has a district attorney. If there is no
district attorney, the county attorney represents the state in all
civil and criminal cases in both the district and county courts. If
there is a district attorney, the county attorney is responsible for
cases in the courts below the level of the district attorney. The
county attorney also acts as legal advisor for the county.
In most cases you would contact the District Attorney Office for criminal complaints.
