State's Attorney

The Winnebago County State's Attorney is the chief prosecuting officer of the county. The state's attorney has the exclusive and statutory responsibility for prosecuting violations of the criminal law of the State of Illinois, as well as many other regulatory laws of the state and county including traffic regulation, juvenile court matters and mental health hearing. The state's attorney is a constitutional officer, part of the executive branch of state government, and his powers are executive powers. The strategic priorities outlined by Winnebago County State's Attorney J. Hanley are to: restore faith in the State's Attorney's Office, effectively move defendants through the Criminal Justice System, prioritize the prosecution of violent criminals and divert non-violent offenders from the Criminal Justice System, otherwise known as the Deferred Prosecution Program.
