HAMILTON - Scott Slatton, district attorney for the 25th Judicial Circuit, has announced Leslie Smith as his office’s new Victim’s Services Officer (VSO), which will service both Marion and Winston counties.
Slatton announced Smith as the new VSO on social media on Saturday, Jan. 25, noting the position is funded by the $6.3 million grant awarded in December 2018 by Gov. Kay Ivey and the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA). The monies are being used to fund a total of 88 VSOs statewide.
“Leslie Smith joins the office of the district attorney and will be available for information, understanding and support, such as someone to just be a companion in the courtroom for victims of crime and their families,” Slatton said in the post.
Smith will be employed by Alabama’s Office of Prosecution Services and assigned to the 25th Judicial Circuit.
