The County Prosecutor handles adult felony charges and all juvenile cases; for misdemeanor charges, please contact Xenia Municipal Court or Fairborn Municipal Court. For juvenile cases, please contact our juvenile division.
If you are the victim of a crime or believe a crime has occurred, please contact your local police agency. The police will investigate and present the case to the Prosecutor’s Office for review. Please note that you cannot drop charges; only the assistant prosecuting attorney, with the judge’s permission, can dismiss criminal charges.
If you received a subpoena, you are required by law to appear as instructed. A subpoena is an order by a Court requiring you to appear for a scheduled court date. If you refuse to appear, the Court does have the authority to issue an order for your arrest. If you have been subpoenaed to testify in a trial for felony charges and have questions, the Greene County Prosecutor’s office will be happy to assist you. Please have your subpoena in hand and call (937) 562-5250 for assistance.
If you are subpoenaed to court as a victim or witness and you do not appear, the judge assigned to the case may not permit a continuance and the case will be dismissed. If you are the defendant and you fail to appear in court, a warrant will be issued for your arrest.
