A Prosecuting Attorney, whose office is provided for in the constitution, is elected in each judicial circuit for a term of four years. He represents the State of Indiana and prosecutes violators of state statutes in various courts in his judicial circuit having criminal jurisdiction. This office is not strictly a county office since the prosecutor is elected for a judicial circuit in the same manner as Judges. He must be a practicing attorney.
County prosecutors may request the County Coroner to have an autopsy performed.
