The Town of Truckee is 57 miles east of Nevada City, roughly a one-hour drive. In recent years the population of eastern Nevada County has grown significantly. The Superior Court Department in Truckee is a full time Court handling civil and family law matters as well as juvenile and criminal matters. As a result, a full time Deputy District Attorney is needed to handle criminal and juvenile delinquency matters.
With the exception of selected murder, child abuse, statutory rape and violence against women cases, the Deputy District Attorney assigned to Truckee is responsible for all cases originating in Truckee.
