    Ronald R. Holliday


    Prosecuting Attorney



    A prosecutor "is the representative not of an ordinary party to a controversy, but of a sovereignty whose obligation to govern impartially is as compelling as its obligation to govern at all, and whose interest, therefore, in a criminal prosecution is not that it shall win a case, but that justice shall be done. As such, he is in a peculiar and very definite sense the servant of the law, the twofold aim of which is that guilt shall not escape or innocence suffer."

    Justice Sutherland, Berger v. United States , 295 U.S. 78 (1935).



    Mission Statement: "TO DO JUSTICE, AS NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW NOR BENEATH ITS PROTECTION."
