The Cochise County Attorney’s Office prosecutes felony criminal cases in the Superior Court of the State of Arizona; misdemeanor criminal cases in the Cochise County Justice of the Peace Courts; and juvenile cases in the Juvenile Court.
We also provide legal advice and representation to all Cochise County departments; the Cochise County Board of Supervisors and other county Special Districts.
We also handle property forfeiture cases; provide victim services; and provide adoption assistance at no charge to adopting parents.
The Cochise County Attorney’s Office does not investigate crimes. All crimes must be investigated by the appropriate law enforcement agency before a complaint is issued by the County Attorney’s Office. If you believe you have been the victim of a crime, please contact your municipal police department if the offense occurred within city limits, or the Cochise County Sheriff’s Office if the offense occurred within the county, outside city limits.
