When fairness predominates then justice follows.
I pledge, as Perry County Prosecutor, to be tough on crime, but fair in the way justice is administered. I will not practice favoritism in the handling of criminal charges. I will work closely with law enforcement to ensure that, when the evidence warrants it, charges are filed appropriately by my office. I will make it a priority to fully utilize the Drug Court Program for first-time offenders. I will keep crime victims involved in the judicial system as cases work toward resolution. I will prosecute those charged with serious offenses to the fullest extent permitted by law.
Most importantly, I pledge to have an open-door policy with respect to you, the people of Perry County. I will be accountable to you.
You have my word on it.
S. Rod Acchiardo
