PRINCETON, WV (WVNS) — Mercer County Prosecuting Attorney George Sitler filed for re-election on Monday, January 13, 2020.

Sitler is a republican and has worked in the Prosecuting Attorney’s Office since 2005.

“I’m very proud of the progress we’ve made to improve services to crime victims in our County. During my term, we’ve secured over $250,000.00 in Federal grant funding for additional child abuse Prosecutors, investigators, and victim advocates. My office has brought 30 serious Felony cases to trial, obtaining the most severe penalties available under our laws. We’ve also worked with our law enforcement agencies and school administrators to improve security in Mercer County Schools.

I have worked with our local Legislators to sponsor legislation to increase the penalties for crimes resulting to injuries to children, distracted driving, and methamphetamine distribution.

I have tried more child sexual assault and murder cases than any attorney currently practicing in our County. I hope to continue serving Mercer County’s citizens in the pursuit of justice.”
