It is the duty of the District Attorney's Office to prosecute all felony and misdemeanor cases that are committed in Midland County. Our job is to see that justice is done. Our office handles cases submitted to us by a law enforcement agency.
We handle the cases through trial and all appeal proceedings. We do not represent any one individual. Instead, we represent the State of Texas and the citizens of Midland County.
Please remember to dress appropriately for court. The following are not appropriate:
For men, nice jeans or slacks with polo shirts or button down shirts are appropriate. For ladies, skirts, slacks or nice jeans, blouses, and dresses are appropriate.
In most cases you should report the crime to your local law enforcement agency. If your report is an emergency, call 911. If the crime occurred in the city limits, report the crime to the police department.
The City of Midland Police Department Telephone Reporting Unit's phone number is 432-685-7108. If the crime is committed outside the city limits in Midland County, contact the Midland County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division by calling 432-688-4600.
Any crime should be reported to your local law enforcement agency. The only direct filings the District Attorney's Office accepts are for hot checks.
Texas law requires action by the grand jury in most instances before a felony case can be brought to trial. If the grand jury believes that there is probable cause to prove that a person has committed a felony, it votes to issue an indictment. A no-bill means that there is not sufficient probable cause to move the case forward.
The District Attorney's Office assists the grand jury in hearing evidence and preparing indictments, but the actual deliberations are secret. Only the grand jurors are present during deliberations and voting on the cases.
