Under the leadership of the Honorable District Attorney Brittny B. Lewton, our office maintains two priorities: prosecuting criminals to the fullest extent possible, and protecting the rights and interests of innocent victims.
Our Judicial District includes more than eleven thousand square miles and has just under eighty one thousand residents. We serve the People of Logan, Morgan, Yuma, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington, and Kit Carson Counties. Our offices are located in Sterling and Fort Morgan and our employees are split almost evenly between the two offices. Between our two offices, there are 10 attorneys including Ms. Lewton and Assistant District Attorney Hollie Wilkinson, who primarily operates the Fort Morgan Office. We also employee 11 legal assistants, including Office Manager Jill Olsen. We also have 2 investigators, one in each office, who work on behalf of the People in the 13th Judicial District.
In County Court, our office handles approximately 4500 traffic and misdemeanor cases a year.
In District Court, our office handles an average of 860 felony cases per year. These cases range from drug possession to homicide. District Court also prosecutes an average of 180 juvenile cases per year.
