Criminal Division - Misdemeanor

Our office also handles all misdemeanor crimes. When misdemeanor files are assigned, an assistant district attorney takes it to court, at which time the office processes all files in accordance with the Court's action. In addition, this office is responsible for processing all charges relating to Wildlife and Fisheries.

The misdemeanors that occur within the Jennings city limits are sent to Jennings City Court for prosecution, which has its own city prosecutor. Elton, Lake Arthur, Fenton and Welsh have Mayor’s Court that handle minor traffic and misdemeanor offenses.
