Answer: When someone is charged with a criminal offense, a prosecuting attorney pursues a conviction because evidence exists that a state or local law was violated. Evidence of a crime may include documentation or proof in addition to victim or witness statements. A prosecutor may seek a conviction based on the evidence available.
