Review by Prosecuting Attorney
The Prosecuting Attorney must thoroughly review all reports and records concerning the case, including victim and witness statements. The Prosecutor also reviews the suspect's prior criminal or traffic record. The Prosecutor can charge the suspect with a criminal offense if he reasonably believes that probable cause exists that the suspect committed the offense, but most Prosecuting Attorneys apply a higher standard -- whether he reasonably believes that he can prove the charge beyond a reasonable doubt at trial with the information known at that time. Occasionally, the reviewing Prosecutor sends the case back to the police to conduct additional investigation.
