AGO Opinions with Topic: CORONER IN FOURTH CLASS AND LOWER CLASS COUNTIES
AGO 1950 No. 316 >  August 3, 1950
PROSECUTING ATTORNEY - CORONER IN FOURTH CLASS AND LOWER CLASS COUNTIES
PROSECUTING ATTORNEY ‑- CORONER IN FOURTH CLASS AND LOWER CLASS COUNTIES

The prosecuting attorney in a fourth class or lower classification county has no authority to appoint a deputy coroner.  In cases where such prosecuting attorney has a duly appointed, qualified, and acting deputy, the prosecuting attorney could properly delegate to such deputy the performance of any duty as to coroner cases which might otherwise devolve upon the prosecuting attorney.
