Guidelines

Cases will be assigned based on the most serious charge brought against the defendant.  The assignment for the overwhelming number of cases will be apparent, but when multiple tickets bring assignment into question, just call our office and ask.

You may also email us at cityprosecutor@gocolumbiamo.com and your query will be forwarded to the responsible attorney.

Attorneys will make offers, conduct plea negotiations, and try cases within their area of responsibility.
