CANTON — The St. Lawrence County District Attorney’s office received two grants from the state Division of Criminal Justice Services totaling $137,600 for partial payment of salary and benefits for six of the eight attorneys in the office.

The funding, announced in a news release from the DA’s office, also will help pay for office equipment, including computers.

District Attorney Mary E. Rain said in the release that the grants will assist the county during fiscally difficult times by helping to pay for experienced attorneys to “successfully prosecute violent criminals and drug dealers.”
