Date Set To Swear In New County Prosecutor

At a formal ceremony to be held in the DeSoto County Courthouse at 2:00pm on April 4th, James “Jim” Holland will be sworn-in as the new County Prosecutor. Holland, a veteran attorney who has spent years in private practice as well as serving various municipalities in a legal capacity, was appointed to the position by the DeSoto County Board of Supervisors at their March 20th meeting.

The appointment comes following a period which saw several court positions change. Beginning with the November 2016 election of Bobby Chamberlin to the Mississippi Supreme Court, Governor Phil Bryant appointed County Court Judge Celeste Wilson to Chamberlin’s vacated Circuit Judge Seat and appointed County Prosecutor Craig Treadway to Judge Wilson’s previous position. This opened the County Prosecutor position to be filled by a Board of Supervisors’ appointee until a November 2017 election.

“Jim Holland is a man of integrity and we know he’ll do a great job,” said District Four Supervisor Lee Caldwell. “We have a high standard in our court and we believe he will carry on in that vein.”   

As County Court Judge, Craig Treadway will swear Holland into his new position. This moment holds special significance, as Treadway previously served as County Prosecutor.

Friends, family, colleagues, and the media are invited to attend the swearing in ceremony.
