About:
The State's Attorney's Office prosecutes all state criminal cases (felony and misdemeanor) and traffic cases for Moultrie County. The office is also the legal counsel for the county for county business. We do not represent individual citizens. We cannot get involved in civil legal disputes and we cannot provide legal advice for civil law issues. For example, we cannot give advice about divorce cases, child custody issues, land disputes, or landlord tenant issues.
