The District Attorney is elected every four years and prosecutes all violations of state laws, which occur in Taylor County, such as murder, robbery, rape, and other offenses and also prosecutes violations of county ordinances such as reckless driving, speeding, illegal passing and other types of motor vehicle violations. The Victim/Witness Program aids those individuals who have either been the victim of a crime, or who have witnessed a crime and have been called to testify in court. The Victim/Witness Coordinator Amy Merrill keeps the victims informed of the status of criminal proceedings, and elicits the victim’s input into sentencing or plea negotiations. Assistance is also given to those requesting help with Crime Victim Compensation Applications or Victim Impact Statements.
