Prosecutor gets pay increase

Posted July 23, 2015 at 12:21 pm

by Jason Lamb, State of Missouri Office of Prosecution Services

In January of this year, I advised you of the possibility that full-time prosecutors would receive a one percent (1%) pay raise based upon possible salary increases in the judiciary. Apparently, all Missouri judges, including associate circuit judges, will be receiving a 1% salary increase effective July 1, 2015.

Pursuant to section 56.265, the compensation for full-time elected prosecutors (except charter counties) is tied to the salary of associate circuit judges. Salaries of associate circuit judges are indexed to 73% of the salary of a federal magistrate. By statue, federal magistrates receive up to 92% of the salary of a federal district judge. The current salary for full-time prosecutors is $133,716. A 1% salary increase will take this salary to $135,053.16.
