The Prosecutor’s Office is responsible for upholding the law, providing representation to county agencies, and assisting victims.  Our Adult Felony Division aggressively prosecutes felony cases each year, from Grand Jury through the appeal process.  The Juvenile Division handles all juvenile offenders in Van Wert County at both the felony and misdemeanor level.  The Civil Division legally represents and assists county agencies and townships.

In addition to these daily roles, the Van Wert County Prosecutor’s Office also works with Crime Victim Services and Children’s Services in order to help protect Van Wert County citizens.  Child Support Enforcement is also an ongoing responsibility of the Prosecutor’s Office.
