Office of the City Prosecutor

The Criminal Prosecution Division is responsible for prosecuting all misdemeanor offenses that occur within the City of Jackson.  Misdemeanor offenses range from traffic violations and DUI to domestic violence and simple assault.  In addition to criminal violations of state law, the Criminal Prosecution Division also prosecutes violations of the City's ordinances (i.e. public nudity, noise control, junked vehicles, etc.).

All misdemeanor trials take place at the Jackson Municipal Court.  Cases that are appealed from the Jackson Municipal Court are further prosecuted at the Hinds County Court and Hinds Circuit Court levels.  The Criminal Prosecution Division also handles drug forfeiture cases in the Hinds County Court where property has been confiscated through arrests made by the Jackson Police Department.
