The mission of the Office of the District Attorney is to promote justice and protect the people of Jackson, George, and Greene Counties by aggressively prosecuting criminals and holding them accountable for their actions, protecting the innocent, and preserving the rights and dignity of the victims of crime and their families. Our vision is to promote and enhance the quality of life in our community and to make our community a safe place to live, work, and play through our Safe Kids, Safe Streets program. In addition, the Distict Attorney’s office has a Worthless Check Unit which collects bad checks for area merchants and a Pre-Trial Division Program for first-time non-violent offenders. As District Attorney, and as a lifelong resident of this district, I am committed to protecting our children, making our streets safe, and ensuring victims’ rights. The work of this office is the people’s business. My staff and I will ensure that it will be conducted without bias, prejudice, or improper influence.
