Mr. Todd gave an update on the Solicitor’s office. It is responsible for the prosecution of adults charged with General Sessions Court offenses, as well as for juveniles charged with all criminal and statutory offenses which are heard in Family Court. The prosecuting attorneys also represent the State in civil cases involving forfeiture of property related to unlawful drug activity.
With the large number of pending cases and a very narrow window for court dates, they are “running” all the time to keep up. Ricky shared some interesting stories about some of the cases he has tried.
An interesting window into a world few of us ever see.
