District Attorney Office

District Attorney Jean Engler was elected to the Office in 2015, and is chief law enforcement officer in Carbon County. Attorney Engler and her staff of six Assistant District Attorneys, are responsible for the prosecution of those accused of violating the criminal laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

In addition to the trial of all criminal cases, the District Attorney’s Office routinely handles preliminary hearings of all adult defendants, conducts pre-trial conferences of adult and juvenile defendants, and prosecutes all violations of probation and parole.

This Office also coordinates and assists the Carbon County Drug Task Force, which deals with drug violations throughout the County. In 1996, the District Attorney’s Office began a Victim/Witness Program under the supervision of John Mauro. Under Act 155, victims and/or witnesses are provided services such as notice of Court proceedings, Court dispositions, identification of professional, qualified support groups, and notification of defendants being released from state and local correctional facilities and mental institutions.
