Dur­ing the lat­est meet­ing of the Cal­houn Ro­tary Club, Pro­gram Chair Bill Thomp­son in­tro­duced speaker Rose­mary Greene, District At­tor­ney of the Chero­kee Ju­di­cial Cir­cuit.

The Chero­kee Ju­di­cial Cir­cuit is com­posed of Bar­tow and Gor­don Coun­ties. The district at­tor­ney is the Chief Pros­e­cut­ing Of­fi­cer and Greene has held the po­si­tion since 2013. She says the job ful­fills an am­bi­tion she has had since child­hood.

Greene also ex­plained that the court has spe­cialty func­tions such as Drug Court and Do­mes­tic Vi­o­lence. Ac­com­pa­ny­ing Greene was Ju­lia Richards, the di­rec­tor of Vic­tim As­sis­tance and Fa­cil­ity Dog Han­dler. She brought along Pil­grim, the Court­house Fa­cil­ity Dog, whose role is to help chil­dren who are vic­tims of crime or who are tes­ti­fy­ing in cases. Pil­grim’s du­ties are to help chil­dren ( and adults) feel more at ease in the of­ten in­tim­i­dat­ing court­room set­ting.

Also at­tend­ing the meet­ing was Tony Pyle, in­com­ing Chief of Police for the City of Cal­houn.
