(Farmington) The St. Francois County Prosecuting Attorney’s office has released it’s year end statistics from 2021. Prosecuting Attorney Melissa Gilliam says the numbers show just how busy they’ve been.
Gilliam says they are several reasons for the difference.
The St. Francois County Prosecuting Attorney’s office had 23 trials last year, compared to 3 in 2020. If all goes well, and they avoid any major issues with COVID-19, Gilliam says she expects the number of trials this year to at least double.
