Juvenile Division

The Juvenile Division of the Trumbull County Prosecutor's Office is responsible for prosecuting all juvenile criminal cases, cases involving children under the age of 18 years, whether they involve felonies, misdemeanors, traffic violations or status offenses such as truancy and incorrigibility.

The office also prosecutes adult contributing cases in which adults have created situations resulting in a juvenile being delinquent or unruly.

The Prosecutor appears before two Judges and one Magistrate. Police Departments rely heavily on the Prosecutor for advice on sensitive issues that are not present in adult cases.

The Trumbull County Juvenile Court is located at Trumbull County Family Court, 220 South Main Avenue, Warren, Ohio 44482.

The Unit is staffed by 2 attorneys and their support staff.
