Mission Statement

We, the Bonner County Prosecutor’s Office, serve the public and law enforcement agencies by prosecuting  criminal cases through aggressive, fair, and timely prosecution of crimes while offering dignity, respect, and support to crime victims.   We also prosecute and defend civil actions involving Bonner County, and advise the county commissioners and other public officers on matters of county business.


Welcome to the web site of the Bonner County Prosecutor

My name is Louis Marshall.  I have been the elected prosecutor since January 2009.  Before that, I served as a deputy prosecutor from the years 2002 through 2008.  We have nineteen employees, including eight attorneys.  Our office handles the prosecution of all crimes that occur within unincorporated Bonner County as well as the felonies that occur within the cities of Sandpoint, Priest River, and Ponderay.  Additionally, the office is responsible for all crimes committed under the Juvenile Corrections Act, all civil commitment proceedings and all proceedings under the Child Protection Act.  Our office also represents Bonner County in a civil capacity.  This includes providing legal advice to elected officials and department heads, as well as providing general civil defense of Bonner County.

We are an active participant in the Bonner County Drug Court and we look for proactive ways to deal with our community’s drug problem, focusing especially on methamphetamine.  We also represent and play an active role in the Bonner County Board of Community Guardian as we try to help those in our community assist the most vulnerable amongst us. Please take an opportunity to review and explore this website.  Let me know if there are things that are especially helpful or could be changed in your opinion.  I do appreciate the feedback. Thank you, Louis Marshall   __________________________________________________________________________
