About the State’s Attorney’s Office
Forty-three Assistant State’s Attorneys and two Deputies serve under the direction of the elected State’s Attorney. The office is organized into three separate sites to prosecute various criminal and traffic cases. The main office operates from the Circuit Court in Annapolis. It consists of various trial teams that specialize in sex offenses and child abuse, violent crimes, felony drug cases, property crimes, economic crimes, juvenile cases, and forfeitures. Cases that land in Circuit Court are typically felonies or serious misdemeanors and carry the possibility of substantial jail time. The District Court level is separated between offices in Annapolis and Glen Burnie. These courts typically deal with offenses such as domestic violence, misdemeanor assaults, thefts, drug possession and various traffic offenses.
