Serving South Carolinians as a Charleston County prosecutor, Peter McCoy is faced daily with crimes that affect our community. He is a strong advocate for stricter laws and sentencing, particularly for repeat offenders and those who commit violent crimes. Additionally, Peter will work hard to reform juvenile law, with the goal of curbing juvenile delinquency before a life-long pattern of violence is formed.
James Island has recently experienced an increase in violent crimes, including armed robberies, sexual assaults, and police officer shootings. This cannot be ignored. Working closely with neighborhood associations and law enforcement officers, Peter will help James Islanders and Folly Beach residents take control over the safety of their neighborhoods.
