South Carolina Solicitors Association Rejects Plan to Place Prosecutors in Every County To Concentrate on Criminal Domestic Violence Cases
The South Carolina Solicitors Association rejected State Attorney General Henry McMaster's plan to put a prosecutor in every county magistrate’s court to concentrate on criminal domestic violence cases. Unless the group changes its mind, the Attorney General is threatening to ask that the $2.2 million dollars, initially given to the state Commission on Prosecution Coordination, be placed under his control. He said that he will then hire lawyers to prosecute domestic violence criminal cases in these courts. Source: Rick Brundrett, Myrtle Beach Online, siliconvalley.com.
