Message from the Jackson County State’s Attorney

carr-michaelWelcome to the Jackson County State’s Attorney’s Office Website. I hope you find the information contained on the Website useful and informative. You will find links to the Websites of our partners in the criminal justice system, from local law enforcement to state and federal agencies as well as links to important Victim / Witness information, press releases, and information and forms to obtain documents under the Freedom of Information Act. Our goal is to make this site as user-friendly as possible. If a link is not working or if there is general information about our office that you believe should be available on this site in the future, please let us know.

As State’s Attorney, my top priority has been to focus on serious violent crimes. I cannot think of a more important focus for a state’s attorney than protecting the people who live, work, study and visit in Jackson County from violence. Knowing that a majority of serious violent crimes are committed by people who have already been imprisoned, my office is charging serious violent offenders with offenses which carry mandatory minimum prison sentences to ensure that they are removed from our community.
