Welcome to the Prosecuting Attorneys' Office

Welcome to the Knox County Prosecuting Attorney's Office. Through this website, we are committed to providing the citizens of Knox County and others greater access to the services that are provided by the Prosecuting Attorney's Office. One of the primary functions of the Prosecuting Attorney for Knox County is the pursuit of justice. This includes the investigation and prosecution of criminal activity and enterprises occurring within Knox County. These criminal offenses range from non-violent property crimes such as theft and forgery to more serious violent crimes such as rape and murder. Regardless of the crime, the Office is committed to serving victims of crime through its victim/witness division. The services provided to victims, who in many cases are also witnesses, are numerous and varied but all designed to restore to the victims a sense of dignity, hope and in some instances compensation.
