In South Carolina, the Solicitor is the chief prosecuting attorney within a judicial circuit. South Carolina has sixteen judicial circuits which are comprised of two or more counties within the State. The jurisdiction of the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office includes Edgefield, Lexington, McCormick, and Saluda counties. Our office handles criminal matters in the Court of General Sessions (Criminal Court), Family Court (juvenile prosecution), and Magistrate Court for certain criminal charges. Our mission is to protect the rights of the citizens of our counties by prosecuting those who violate the law.
The Eleventh Judicial Circuit Solicitor’s Office has several diversion programs that upon successful completion allows an individual charged with a crime to be rehabilitated thus avoiding a conviction and a criminal record.
We hope that the information on https://solicitor11.sc.gov helps to provide insight into the criminal justice system and our office. Please feel free to contact us directly with any comments or concerns.
