List of State Attorney's Offices in Florida

In Florida, the top prosecutor in each judicial circuit is the State Attorney. Other states sometimes call this position the "District Attorney." Each State Attorney is elected to a four-year term.

The election in 2016 for state attorney positions in Florida resulted in several big upsets with more progressive candidates winning over well-entrenched incumbents. The elections in 2020 for state attorney positions throughout the state are likely to bring in even more changes.

In Florida, the State Attorney processes all criminal cases presented by law enforcement officers who have arrested or cited individuals for felonies, misdemeanors, traffic crimes like DUI or reckless driving, acts of juvenile delinquency, and some violations of county or municipal ordinances.

The State Attorney in each judicial circuit acts in a semi-judicial role in leading a staff of attorneys to apply the state criminal laws fairly and consistently. The State Attorney is given the task of seeking to convict or punish the guilty while protecting the innocent from false allegations.

While acting as the Chief Criminal Prosecutor, the State Attorney also represents the State in various civil matters and litigation. In addition to these duties, the State Attorney provides legal advice to law enforcement agencies within the circuit, working with the agencies to provide in-service training.

Office of Statewide Prosecution - The Florida Constitution directs the Attorney General's Office to maintain an Office of Statewide Prosecution to prosecute cases that impact two or more judicial circuits in the State of Florida. Because each case must be prosecuted in the county in which the crime occurred, the statewide prosecutors travel to courtrooms throughout every judicial circuit in Florida. The statewide prosecutor focuses primarily on organized criminal activity usually involving computers, drugs or economic crimes.
