Prosecutor Job Description

A prosecutor is a government official who is in charge of criminal law and who is appointed by a court of law.

A prosecutor, also called a district attorney, is responsible for investigating and prosecuting all crimes, both minor and serious, within the district in which they are based.

When a case goes to court, the prosecutor presents the case to a judge, who then decides whether the defendant is guilty or not.

Once found responsible for a crime, the defendant is sentenced, and, if convicted, will serve time in a jail or prison.

When a defendant is found not guilty, the prosecutor will usually drop the charges.
