(Versailles, Ind.) – For the first time in 19 years, Ripley County has four prosecutors.

This past Friday in Ripley Superior Court, Ripley County prosecuting attorney Ric Hertel swore in new deputy prosecutor Ashlee Satterfield.

Satterfield’s work will primarily focus on violence against women, particularly domestic violence and sexual assault.

“This is one of the most significant steps in law enforcement and prosecution in my time as prosecuting attorney,” Hertel said.

Satterfield’s position is partially grant funded and part count funded.
