Welcome to the Allen County Prosecuting Attorneys Homepage. Karen E. Richards began serving Allen County as Prosecutor in January, 2003. The Allen County Prosecutor's Office is one of the largest law firms in Allen County, employing over 100 attorneys, paralegals, investigators, administrators, security and support staff. Thousands of misdemeanor and felony cases are filed and disposed from this office annually, while millions of dollars are collected each year in child support.
In continuing our tradition of accessibility to the citizens we serve, we have created this web site. We have designed the site to answer your questions about the role and responsibilities of the Prosecutor, as well as other aspects of the criminal justice and child support enforcement systems.
Our office works diligently...
to serve the citizens of Allen County
to protect their rights
to represent victims with compassion
for strong and consistent prosecution of violent criminals
to vigorously prosecute those who prey on crime victims, particularly children, the elderly and others less able to protect themselves
to improve the lives of our community's children by employing every tool at our disposal to ensure the collection of court ordered child support
