The office of the Fountain County Prosecuting Attorney represents the State of Indiana in the following matters: felony and misdemeanor criminal prosecutions arising from crimes committed in Fountain County, Indiana, traffic infractions and non-traffic infractions arising from State statutes, and the prosecution of juvenile offenders, those individuals under 18 years of age who commit status offenses or acts which would be crimes if committed by an adult.


Traffic violators with no or a limited history of traffic violations may be eligible to engage in a traffic deferral program. This is not available to holders of a Commercial Driver's License.


The Fountain County Prosecuting Attorney's Office has a Pretrial Diversion Program for offenders charged with misdemeanor offenses who are EIGHTEEN (18) YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER and have NO PRIOR CONVICTIONS. Persons who are accepted into and complete our program will thereby avoid having a conviction on their record.

If you are interested in learning more about the program, call (765) 793-2411 AFTER YOUR INITIAL HEARING to discuss the Pretrial Diversion Program. After the discussion, if you qualify and wish to participate in the program and are accepted, all paperwork must be completed prior to your NEXT court date.
