North Carolina District Attorneys
Criminal charges are filed by the District Attorney (or "D.A.") in the district where the crime was (allegedly) committed. The criminal case becomes official once the D.A.'s office files the "information" or the grand jury decides to proceed with the charges. In North Carolina, prosecutors are called "Prosecutorial District Attorneys."
While there may be instances where it makes sense to communicate with the D.A. about criminal charges filed against you, remember that they can use anything you accidentally share with them against you. Therefore, it's advised that you work with an attorney in this regard. The following article provides information about North Carolina's Prosecutorial District Attorneys.
