Generally, law enforcement agencies, not the District Attorney, are responsible for investigating cases. However, the District Attorney must evaluate the evidence provided by law enforcement and may determine that additional investigation is necessary before filing charges. In some instances, the District Attorney may assign an independent investigator to seek additional evidence.
For the most part, crimes should be reported to a law enforcement agency. Some county or city District Attorneys may take crime reports for certain types of crimes, such as insurance fraud, corruption or misconduct of public officials, and elder or dependent abuse.
Felonies are the most serious types of offenses and carry sentences that usually exceed one year in state or federal jail. Felonies are classified by degrees, with first-degree felonies being the most serious. Misdemeanors are less serious crimes and are punishable by fines and less than a year in prison.
