I desire to continue working with the sheriff’s office and court personnel to facilitate a justice system in the county that protects its citizens and allows them to enjoy these things.”

He is a graduate of Hampden-Sydney College and received a Masters of Theological Studies degree from Duke University. Beasley worked at The Farmers Bank of Appomattox before earning his juris doctorate at Liberty Law School.
