During his campaign, Brent Eaton made a promise to be in Hancock County’s courts as an active participant. He understood that the elected prosecutor needed to consistently be in the courtroom. It had been nearly 10 years since the Hancock County Prosecutor had been in a trial, in front of a jury. Since taking office, Prosecutor Eaton frequents all three courts handling a variety of cases. He was in court, in front of a jury, for the murder cases of: Amanda Gonzales, Matthew Wagoner and Damian Coleman, leading the way to murder convictions in each of the three cases. All three have been upheld on appeal.
