The District Attorney’s Office is divided into divisions to correspond with the office’s missions. Each parish in the district has a Criminal Division, which covers felonies and misdemeanors, including traffic and worthless checks. The Civil Division and the Appeals/Post-Conviction Relief Divisions are quartered within the Richland Parish office, but handle issues throughout the judicial district. The Juvenile and Non-Support Divisions are housed in separate offices in Richland Parish, but also cover the entire district.
