The Trial Deputy evaluates the merits of each assigned case, taking into consideration the available resources, strength of the evidence, relative severity of the crime and its impact on the victim and the community, and special policy considerations as they apply to each case. This position reports directly to a Senior Deputy Prosecutor, and acts by virtue of authority delegated by the Senior Deputy.
