The Edgefield County Magistrate’s Office is dedicated to providing professional service to the public. The Magistrate’s Office has jurisdiction over many misdemeanor criminal and traffic charges, typically where the penalty is a maximum of 30 days in jail or a fine.

Payments for criminal / traffic charges, and civil filings, may be made at our office by cash, credit card, money order or cashier’s check.
