Office of the Butler County Prosecutor

who we are and...

what we do

latest news

The office of the Butler County Prosecuting Attorney serves many functions within the framework of county government. The Prosecutor and his staff are responsible for the prosecution of all felony cases. This includes advising law enforcement officers about legal questions which may arise during investigations, assisting in the procurement of search and arrest warrants, presentation of the cases at preliminary hearings, grand jury, and at trial. Should there be appeals, the Prosecutor's Office presents the cases to both the Court of Appeals and to the Supreme Court of the State of Ohio, and, if necessary, to the United States Supreme Court.

In Juvenile Court, our office prosecutes juveniles charged with being delinquent and unruly. We also represent Butler County Children Services in cases involving abused, neglected, and dependent children.

The Office serves as counsel for all Butler County government offices and agencies, townships, and school districts.

The Office provides legal opinions, prepares legal documents, reviews contracts, initiates law suits on behalf of the governmental entities, and defends them in courts and before administrative agencies.

Michael T. GmoserMy name is Mike Gmoser and I am the elected Butler County Prosecutor. I am a lifelong conservative Republican and maintained a successful trial practice for thirty-seven years. I served as Chief Trial Counsel and Assistant Butler County Prosecuting Attorney for nearly eight years during the 70's and 80's. In 1981, I served as the Prosecuting Attorney by special appointment of the County Commissioners during the absence of the Prosecutor due to health reasons.

I consider my appointed service as co-chair of the Bar Association Certified Ethics and Grievance Committee for eight years and membership for 36 years among the foremost of my prior public service accomplishments.

I am in excellent health and currently hold a FAA medical certificate for the high performance aircraft I fly with seaplane and instrument ratings.  Underwater photography, deep sea fishing, astronomy and beekeeping are also high on my list of interests and pastimes.
