The Lassen County District Attorney’s Office, in partnership with the community we serve, is dedicated to ensuring public safety through the vigorous, ethical and professional prosecution of crime while protecting the rights of victims and witnesses.


Attention Residents of Lassen County! The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) has asked for public comment regarding Proposition 57,  the measure deceptively titled the "Public Safety and Rehabilitation Act of 2016". As anticipated by this office last year, this proposition has the potential to be devastating to our community and allows perpetrators of serious, violent crimes to be eligible for early release from prison. (See the Lassen County District Attorney's e-newsletter posted below from August 2016, The Dangerous Road - Prop 57 for more information.) If you are fed up with the rising crime rates in Lassen County, make your voices heard. Effective July 14, 2017 through September 1, 2017, at 5:00 PM, public comment will be accepted through the following channels:

  1. By mail: CDCR, Regulation and Policy Management Branch, P.O. Box 942883, Sacramento, CA 94283-0001
  2. By fax:  (916) 324-6075
  3. By e-mail:

For additional information please see the Lassen County District Attorney's Facebook Page.

The District Attorney's Office is changing locations. Our new offices are located at: 2950 Riverside Drive, Suite 102, Susanville, CA 96130 as of April 17, 2017

I am pleased to provide the opportunity for the citizens of Lassen County to learn more about the District Attorney's Office and clarify our role and responsibilities. As your District Attorney, my duty is to protect all citizens of the county by justly and fairly prosecuting those who threaten our safety. The positive reputation my office has developed since I was elected is one that I am proud of, particularly through the effective prosecution of violent criminals, "three strikers", sexual predators, and other violators. I am a strong supporter of my staff, a team of dedicated attorney’s and professionals committed to the mission and vision of our office.

Other than the prosecution of crime in the county, did you know of the different type of work and various programs our office provides the community? The District Attorney’s Office is responsible for:  Prison Prosecution, Criminal Investigation, Asset Forfeiture, Public Record Requests, presentations to the public about the DA office and the Adult Criminal Justice System and community outreach designed toward the prevention of domestic violence, child abuse, and other senseless crimes. One of our many goals for the future includes an intervention and diversion program designed to give new opportunities to early, non-serious criminal and drug-addicted offenders. Moreover, I am proud of the efforts of the Victim Witness staff that work closely with crime victims to help guide them from victim to survivor. Please take a look at our Victim Witness website for more information on this valuable program.

I appreciate your interest and look forward to your input as to how our office may better serve you. We appreciate the community’s input, so please feel free to share your kudos and/or concerns via our email at: We will respond as soon as possible. Thank you for visiting! --Stacey Montgomery
