The Criminal Division files, processes, and maintains criminal records of felonies, misdemeanors, and infractions. The Division maintains an index of filings and records of criminal dispositions. A criminal case begins when a prosecutor (District Attorney) files formal charges, a person is arrested, or a grand jury issues an indictment. In all criminal cases, the defendant (the person accused of a crime) is presumed innocent.

Please note that the Criminal Division handles DUI cases.
