A Prosecutor's Perspective

The Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office for the 18th Judicial Circuit is responsible for prosecuting felony criminal offenses in Harrison, Nicholas, Pendleton, and Robertson Counties.  Douglas Miller, your current Commonwealth’s Attorney, has served in that elected position since 2009.  My name is Michael Laws, and I am your Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney.  In other words, I am the assistant felony prosecutor in your county.  I have served in this position since I was appointed by former Commonwealth’s Attorney Douglas Wright in 2006.
