Commonwealth's Attorney
The Commonwealth's Attorney's Office is responsible for prosecuting persons charged with criminal misdemeanors and felonies. Cases presented by our office are tried in the Circuit CourtGeneral District Court and the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court. Our staff includes the commonwealth attorney, one deputy attorney, two assistant attorneys and the support staff.

This Office seeks justice. Our team of attorneys, victim/witness coordinator and support staff are dedicated to making our community a safer place to live, work and visit.

Beyond the preparation and trial of criminal cases, our office advises law enforcement agencies, consults with and advises the 
Dinwiddie Sheriff's Department regarding policies and procedures, answers citizen inquiries concerning the criminal justice system, and provides assistance for on-going criminal investigations of the Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Department and the Virginia State Police.

The majority of the cases we handle are brought by law enforcement officers, although we also prosecute cases initiated by a citizen's complaint.
