What does a District Attorney Do?

Seek Justice

District attorneys are elected officials who represent the government in criminal proceedings against any person accused of a crime. DAs are supposed to represent the interests of the community. Their job is to seek justice. 

Prevent Crime

District attorneys can prevent crime by seeking justice for the most vulnerable people in our communities. They decide if someone accused of committing a crime will go to prison or get help to rebuild their lives and end a cycle of crime. This affects all of us, particularly youth, immigrants, people of color, and people suffering with mental illness and substance abuse. 

Be A Leader

District attorneys serve the interests of their communities in courtrooms, through supporting or opposing statewide policies, and by deciding how to spend public money. They make difficult decisions every day that impact millions of people in their counties. They are leaders in the diverse communities they represent. 

“It’s critical that we zoom out on crime and harm [and] take a proactive approach in order to prevent harm in Santa Clara County and beyond. As a public defender, I’ve been in our juvenile hall, I’ve been in our jail, and I’ve represented countless people who have been accused of and convicted of harm.

“I’ve understood that harm and crime don’t come in a vacuum. They’re not a function of bad people. They’re often a function of circumstance and context, things that could be remedied and in turn, help us avoid harm from happening in the first place.”

-Sajid Khan
