Idaho County

Kirk MacGregor

Serving the Citizens of Idaho County Since 2004

I was born and raised in Grangeville, Idaho and graduated in 1985 from Eastern Washington University.  I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in History/Political Science and received my law degree from the University of Idaho in 1988.  After law school, I returned to Grangeville and became a law partner with my father, Wayne C. MacGregor, Jr. in 1991.  I was elected Idaho County Prosecuting Attorney in November, 2004 and have remained the prosecutor since that time.  I love living in a rural community such as Idaho County where outdoor recreational opportunities are endless.  When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, hunting, fishing, rafting and trapshooting.  I am married with two children, a 9-year-old daughter and 8-year-old son.

I enjoy being extremely involved in my children’s sports activities, volunteering to coach many of the teams. I have been involved in many different clubs and organizations in Idaho County. I am a member of the Grangeville Lion’s Club and former president. I am also a member of the Grangeville Gun Club and former president. I am also a past Vice-President of the 2nd Judicial District Bar Association.

I became a prosecutor to seek justice for victims of crime and to ensure that all people convicted of crimes were treated appropriately and fairly. My concern was to make certain victims were treated with respect and their voices and opinions would be heard. In addition, I felt it was important defendants be treated fairly and in a manner appropriate to the crime they committed, but also harshly in those instances where the protection of our community was paramount.

My father, who passed away in 2017, at the age of 91 had been a prosecutor for 14 years early on in his career. He was a huge influence in my decision to seek to become a prosecutor. His hard work, dedication to the law and level-headed thinking in times of crisis are traits I have tried to emulate. He treated everyone with respect and strived to be open, fair and honest.

The most rewarding part of my job is working with law enforcement to ensure that our community is safe. This includes working to solve crime and obtain appropriate punishment for defendants so that victims feel that their voices are heard. My personal experience with the criminal justice system has been very positive. I am impressed and pleased with how hard everyone in the system works to ensure a fair result. The prosecutors I have observed have strived to be fair and just.

My goal is to ensure we live in a county that protects its citizens especially the elderly and children and that everyone’s voice is heard in relation to our criminal justice system.
