Southern Ute Tribal Seal

Tribal Prosecutor


The mission of the Tribal Prosecutor’s Office is to secure justice for victims of crime and to help reduce crime on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. Rehabilitation of offenders is the preferred method of reducing crime on the Southern Ute Indian Reservation. In most cases, offenders are referred to treatment programs to work on drug or alcohol dependency, anger management, domestic violence, or trauma & loss. Incarceration is recommended for repeat offenders, violent offenders or those offenders who are not interested in treatment. Jail credit is afforded offenders who successfully complete in-patient treatment programs or attend counseling while in custody.
