This is where the serious criminal cases are heard. The DA's office is probably the best in the area, with little ADA turnover, better than average pay, and relatively moderate caseload, especially compared to Albany, Schenectady and Rensselaer counties which get quite busy.
ABOUT THE AREA
Saratoga County is considered by many to be the jewel of the Capital Region. Points of interest include the racetrack, the Saratoga battlefield, the Spa, the Spa Park, the Performing Arts Center (SPAC) and Saratoga Lake, among others. All are very worthwhile. Saratoga County also boasts the lowest per capita tax rates in New York.
Honorable Jerry J. Scarano
The head Saratoga County District Attorney is James Murphy. Chief Trial ADA is Karen A. Heggen. Al Puremba seems to be the go-to guy on drug cases. A number of other ADAs handle matters in County Court.
TYPE OF CASES
Felonies, including repeat DWI cases and even more nasty stuff.
