The Williamson County State’s Attorney’s Office is responsible for prosecuting all violations of criminal law occurring within Williamson County on behalf of the People of the State of Illinois. Additionally, the office serves as legal counsel to Williamson County government including the Board of County Commissioners and other elected officials. The State’s Attorney’s Office also prosecutes violations of Williamson County ordinances and represents the County in civil court proceedings.

The guiding principle for the Williamson County State’s Attorney’s Office is found in Illinois Supreme Court Rule 3.8:

The duty of a public prosecutor . . . is to seek justice, not merely to convict.

In each individual case, the office seeks to ensure that justice is served for all parties involved and for the People of the State of Illinois.
