Message from the District Attorney

Welcome to the official  website for the Office of the  DeKalb County District Attorney,  Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit. 

I am proud to serve as your District Attorney and execute a new vision for DeKalb County.

The DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office prosecutes felony offenses in the Superior Court of DeKalb County. As District Attorney, I am responsible for supervising and training a staff of nearly 200 individuals including attorneys, investigators, victim-witness advocates, administrators, and support personnel,  while administering an annual budget of approximately $15 million. 

In addition to prosecuting cases, the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office works with local citizens, community leaders, and partner law enforcement agencies to conduct crime prevention and intervention programs that address issues that are important to you and your neighbors. It is our belief that by working together we can improve the quality of life in DeKalb County and make our community a safer place for all to live. 

We hope you will find this website helpful in answering frequently asked questions in addition to  providing you with a better understanding of the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office  and the criminal justice system in general. 

Yours for a safer DeKalb, 

Sherry Boston
