BROOKINGS – Felony drug convictions are adding to the workload in the state’s attorney’s office.

That was part of the message that Brookings County commissioners heard when State’s Attorney Clyde Calhoon presented his annual report at the commission’s meeting Tuesday morning.

There were 42 felony drug convictions in the county in 2013, up from 29 in 2012 and 32 in 2011.

Calhoon explained that the drug cases usually include a suppression motion, an evidentiary hearing and a finding of fact.
