Criminal Division

The Criminal Division:

  • Prosecutes infraction and misdemeanor offenses occurring within the City limits under State and Municipal Codes that are investigated by the Coeur d’Alene Police Department and other law enforcement agencies.
  • Assists the Civil Division in matters involving criminal laws and ordinances.

The Criminal Division practices “vertical prosecution.” This means that one attorney in the office is assigned to a case from start to finish. Cases are assigned to attorneys alphabetically by the defendant’s last name as follows:
