The role of any good prosecutor is to seek justice, not merely a conviction.
The Scott County State’s Attorney’s Office has the responsibility and authority to prosecute crimes in Scott County. In every criminal case we bring before the court, the State's Attorney represents "The People of the State of Illinois." As the elected State’s Attorney of Scott County, I have committed myself to upholding the laws and statutes of Illinois. This office works hand in hand with state and local law enforcement agencies as well as those agencies in the federal government. All resources that can provide justice for victims and offenders alike are utilized by my office. This pooling of resources ensures that the People of Scott County receive the best possible representation from my office. I am committed to providing a safe community for our children to grow and develop in, adhering to the "hometown values" that make Scott County a wonderful place to live. My office has always had an "open door" policy and will continue to operate in that fashion and is committed to providing the people of Scott County with the best services possible from their State's Attorney.
