July Court Cases

NEW COURTHOUSE SECURITY SYSTEM - The Saluda County Courthouse has a new security system at the main and only entrance and it is used daily, not just at  court. The scanning machine is similar to those found in airports and federal buildings. Deputy Sheriff Ted Maclaughlin operates the equipment. The security system is funded through a one-year COVID grant. Men are warned in advance to leave your pocketknives in your vehicle. (Standard-Sentinel photo)
