Beth A. Liggett, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney

Beth joined the Ashland County Prosecutor’s Office in May of 2022 as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney assigned to the Children’s Services Division.

Beth moved to Ohio to attend the University of Akron School of Law, graduating in 2004.  Beth fell in love with Ohio and decided to make it her home upon graduation.  She has experience working in municipal courts, both as a prosecutor and a defense attorney.  Beth comes to us from the Stark County Public Defender’s Office, where she served for the past 5 years as Chief of the Family Court Division.  While at the public defender’s office, Beth led a team of 4 other attorneys who were tasked with providing legal representation to parents in dependency, neglect, and abuse cases, as well as contempt actions.  She also represented juveniles in delinquency and unruly actions. 

When Beth learned of the opportunity to join our office & continue her efforts serving children and families, she couldn’t resist the draw to Ashland County!

Beth is married and she and her husband have two spoiled “ankle-biters.”
