The Baldwin County District Attorney’s Office represents the state of Alabama and prosecutes the felony, misdemeanor and juvenile cases that occur in Baldwin County. Duties include the screening of cases, their presentation to the Grand Jury, trial preparation and presentation of evidence in Circuit and District Courts.
In close, cooperative partnership with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies, they represent crime victims and the citizens of Baldwin County, while taking a proactive stand in preventing and reporting drug offenses, domestic violence, sexual assaults and child abuse.
Victim Service Officers - They have Victim Service Officers who serves as liaisons between victims and the Assistant District Attorney’s. They keep the victims updated on the status of their cases, provide information on upcoming court dates, obtain restitution that is owed to the victim by the offender and answer any questions they may have about the trial process.
Child Support Division - The District Attorney’s Child Support Division assists families to establish paternity, obtain orders for payment of child support, and secure compliance with support orders. They are contracted with the Department of Human Resources to provide legal services in child support cases only.
Worthless Check Program - Each Year, Baldwin County merchants lose thousands of dollars to bad check writers. In an effort to reduce those losses, the District Attorney has Worthless Check Units located in Bay Minette, Fairhope and Foley which allow bad check writers to pay full restitution to their victims in lieu of criminal prosecution. If bad check writers fail to pay restitution, they face criminal charges and prosecution.
The Worthless Check Unit can provide you with the required procedures to follow to collect payment on a bad check, the necessary documents and the allowed amount of fees that will be added to the check. Please contact the Unit closest to you to receive a packet.
