Who We Are

Former Lake County Prosecuting Attorneys

Each County in Ohio has a Prosecuting Attorney who is elected quadrennially. Since the establishment of Lake County in 1840, thirty-five attorneys have served as Lake County's Prosecuting Attorney. Initially the term of office for Prosecuting Attorney was two years. Circa 1928, the General Assembly increased the term of office for the Prosecuting Attorney to four years.
