The County Attorney is responsible for providing legal counsel to the County Board of Commissioners and County Departments, and represents the county in civil matters.
The County Attorney serves as the chief prosecutor of crimes and juvenile offenses in Norman County.
Neither the County Attorney, or staff, are permitted to represent or provide legal advice to private citizens.
County Attorneys are not investigators and do not investigate crimes. All complaints of criminal activity must be reported to Law Enforcement. Law Enforcement will then gather evidence, and when appropriate, submit the case to the County Attorney for review and charging decision.
