The Tenth Judicial Circuit includes Anderson and Oconee counties. Our mission is to preserve the rights of the citizens of Anderson and Oconee counties while vigorously prosecuting those who violate the law. As your elected Solicitor since 2005 I am committed to the administration of justice.
My office is staffed by an outstanding team of assistant solicitors, investigators, victim advocates, and qualified staff personnel who work hard to ensure criminals are punished for their crimes and to ensure the rights of crime victims.
We have created this website to make the criminal justice system accessible and understandable. Here you will find information not only about how we prosecute cases, but also about other services we offer to the community.
