General Trials Unit
Some of these types of cases may also be handled by the other units in the Trial Divisions including Homicide, Prosecutor's Auto Theft Unit, Major Drug, Domestic Violence, Elder Abuse or Child Abuse Unit.
In 2009, two categories of felonies were selected for special prosecution: sexual assaults and animal protection. The prosecutors assigned to these cases have a degree of expertise that allows the Prosecutor's Office to provide improved services to the community.
In the General Trials Unit there are five teams of prosecutors, managed by five supervisors. These five teams staff the 25 courtrooms in the Wayne County Circuit Court Criminal Division.
