We feel that, as a result of a direct covert act (refusing to allow our child to call witnesses or present material evidence during an expulsion hearing due SOLELY to an alleged "clerical issue" that the school district discovered at the last minute -- two hours before the scheduled hearing -- in our child's school registration several years ago?...) officials of an Ohio public school district have intentionally conspired to blatantly interfere with our family's constitutional right to due process. There is already a 42 US 1983 lawsuit in the works, but we also want to press criminal charges against those involved. Do we simply go to our local prosecutor and press charges like we would against a civilian, or are there special hoops to jump through when government employees are involved?
This is a civil issue unless you can convince your local prosecuting attorney to file charges/informations.

I'm going to have to agree with my colleague on this one. You can check with your local prosecutor but usually criminal charges are instituted after an investment. The investigation is usually by law enforcement. If the prosecutor decides to go forward on something like this, I'm sure they could guide you as to what law enforcement agency should contact.
You need to contact your city prosecutor office and/or you county prosecutor office to file criminal charges.
