Commonwealth Attorney

This site is part of our office's continuing effort to provide helpful information about the criminal justice system and to provide an overview of the services our office provides.

I have dedicated my life to protecting our citizens from those who choose to prey on others. Crime has transformed over the years and criminals are using technology to assist in their crimes. In this office, we are taking a pro-active approach toward adapting to changes in the criminal justice system.
Rusty McGuire in Office


Our office is committed to ensuring that justice prevails in Louisa County for all citizens regardless of race, ethnicity or socioeconomic status. By working closely with our law-enforcement partners at the local, state and federal levels, both in Louisa and the surrounding areas, we will strive to maintain and improve the quality of life we expect in Louisa County.

A few years ago we launched Child Safety Initiative (CSI) Louisa and I am happy to report that predators know not to prey on our children. We will continue to engage criminals where they operate to put a shield over our children. We encourage you to review our online internet safety education tools.

This office is here to assist you and we realize that crime does not occur on a 9 to 5 schedule. This office wants to help you.

Community Support

We must have the trust and support of our community for our efforts to be effective. To provide the highest level of service to Louisa County, we have expanded our prosecution team and have taken an aggressive role in education and crime prevention.

Please feel free to contact our office or your community with any questions or concerns about public safety.
