      SC prosecutor observing children's advocacy day

      South Carolina's top prosecutor is drawing attention to the needs of the state's children.

      COLUMBIA (AP) -- South Carolina's top prosecutor is drawing attention to the needs of the state's children.

      Attorney General Alan Wilson is observing 2013 Children's Advocacy Day with a news conference Tuesday at the Statehouse. Wilson says he plans to stand with state legislators and advocates for children's issues.

      Children's Advocacy Day is hosted by the South Carolina Network of Children's Advocacy Centers. Wilson says the group provides training, assistance and support services to Children's Advocacy Centers and other community partners.

      Wilson says more than 7,000 children were served last year by Children's Advocacy Centers throughout South Carolina. The prosecutors says the centers are vital to law enforcement and prosecutors who are investigating crimes against children and need special resources and places to interview alleged victims.
