Criminal Prosecution

The goal of criminal prosecution for the Tribe is to secure the conviction and punishment of one who is accused of violating the Tribal Criminal Code. As a federally recognized Indian Tribe and a sovereign Tribal Government, the Poarch Band of Creek Indians, has its own Tribal court system. All criminal prosecutions are initiated in Tribal Court.

The Tribal Prosecutor is the attorney representing the Tribe and its Tribal citizens (the public) in criminal court proceedings. The duties and responsibilities of the Tribal Prosecutor include, but are not limited to, prosecuting criminal complaints in Tribal Court and participating as a member of the Drug Court Team.

In addition to prosecution, the Tribal Prosecutor provides jurisdictional analysis and coordinates with federal, state, and county judicial and law enforcement systems on cross-jurisdictional issues.


Brad Stinson is an Assistant Attorney General who generally serves as Tribal Prosecutor for the Poarch Band of Creek Indians. His office is located in the Legal Department. Support staff consists of one Litigation Assistant, Debra Coon, and additional support from Tribal Court Administration staff.
