Juvenile Division

Juvenile BuildingResponsibilities

Assistant Prosecuting Attorneys working in our Juvenile Division represent the State of Ohio in the Greene County Juvenile Court by prosecuting or adjudicating such matters as felony and misdemeanor crimes, as well as traffic offenses committed by juvenile offenders. This division is also responsible for proceedings to transfer juvenile offenders who commit serious crimes to the Criminal Division of the Greene County Common Pleas Court to face adult penalties.

Attorneys in this division also represent the Greene County Children Services Agency on cases of child abuse, neglect and dependency. The goal of those cases is to help ensure the safety and well-being of Greene County's children through the prosecution of complaints filed by Greene County Children Services. Whenever law enforcement removes a child from a dangerous environment, the attorneys working with Greene County Children Services become involved.
