Serving South Carolina in Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon and Marlboro Counties.

Fourth Circuit Solicitor's Office

Text Box: Message from Will Rogers, Solicitor

     It has been a long time goal to serve as Solicitor. For the past 11 years, I have prosecuted cases throughout the Fourth Circuit as Assistant Solicitor. When Jay Hodge announced his retirement last year, I knew the time had come to put my years of experience on the line for the people of the Fourth Circuit.

     When I ran for Solicitor, I promised the people of the Fourth Circuit that I would continue to prosecute violent criminals and seek stiff sentences for them. But I also believe that non-violent first time and youthful offenders deserve a second chance to turn their lives around. I will continue the Fourth Circuit alternative programs, especially Drug Court, Equine Therapy and Youth Arts to see that they are available in all Four Counties of the Fourth Circuit. 

     The safety of our citizens is my primary concern. I am aware of a growing gang problem in our area and plan to work with law enforcement and community members to establish a gang task force to identify and control the growth of gangs. As a husband and father, I am committed to our youth and will work to establish truancy programs and youth courts to help keep our youth in school and on the right track. 


Sincerely,

William B. Rogers, Jr. 

I would like to hear from you
