The City Attorney’s Office is recruiting for a Prosecuting Attorney who will be assigned to prosecute State and local criminal offenses in the city’s municipal courts, conducting case screening and evaluation, case preparation, pre-trial hearings, case-in-chief presentations, appeals and other post-judgment requirements.  The selected candidate will also advise City departments and prepare legal opinions on class “C” misdemeanor prosecution matters; prepare and review Code ordinances carrying class “C” misdemeanor prosecution consequences; negotiate appropriate settlements of municipal court cases with attorney representatives and unrepresented defendants; and represent City departments in litigation and administrative hearings in courts other than the City’s municipal courts when connected with class “C” misdemeanor prosecution.  The City of Fort Worth does not hire career prosecutors. This position is an entry level position intended to be a stepping stone into an assistant city attorney position with greater degrees of responsibility and authority.
Possession of a license from the Supreme Court of Texas to practice law is required.  Essential and marginal functions require maintaining physical condition necessary for sitting, standing, or walking for extended periods of time; adequate speech, hearing, and eyesight; and the ability to operate assigned equipment.
Applicants for this position must pass a Criminal Justice Information Systems (CJIS) fingerprint-based background check and maintain CJIS eligibility. Due to CJIS requirements related to system access, the following will result in being disqualified for this position: Felony Convictions, Felony Deferred Adjudication, Class A Misdemeanor Conviction, Class B Misdemeanor Convictions in the last 10 years, Class A Misdemeanor Deferred Adjudication, Class B Misdemeanor Deferred Adjudication in the last 10 years, an Open Arrest for Any Criminal Offense (Felony or Misdemeanor), and ALL Family Violence Convictions regardless of class.
