Career Prosecutor Retires from SC Attorney General’s Office

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – A longtime prosecutor in South Carolina is retiring after a 50-year career spanning work at the local, state and federal levels.

The Attorney General’s Office announced Friday that John McIntosh would be leaving his post as chief deputy attorney general.

McIntosh has served in that role since 1998, for three attorneys general. That includes Henry McMaster, under whom McIntosh also served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office.

McIntosh also previously worked as chief deputy at the 5th Circuit Solicitor’s Office and as a public defender.

Robert Bolchoz is taking over for McIntosh as chief deputy attorney general, a post he previously held from 1995-98. A lawyer for more than 25 years, he also has worked as a solicitor in Charleston.
