Assistant District Attorney

The District Attorney is an elected official and the chief prosecution office of the Judicial Circuit.   Under the constitution and the laws of the State of Georgia, he is responsible for the prosecution of crimes committed in Banks County.

The District Attorney's Office gives special attention to cases involving violent and serious crimes, such as homicides, robbery, sex crimes, crimes against children, violence against persons, and drug offenses, as well as repeat offenders.  Persons who commit these crimes represent the greatest threat to public safety and must receive the principal focus of our efforts.  On an ongoing basis, we must also provide effective prosecution of other felonies and misdemeanors in order to preserve public respect for and confidence in the criminal justice system.  For example, domestic violence and DUI's are continual problems in our county and require considerable attention by the District Attorney's Office.

Cases in the District Attorney's Office generally originate with an arrest by a law enforcement agency operating in Banks County.  Afterwards, a case may be prepared for presentation to the Grand Jury for an indictment.  Those persons who are indicted or who are otherwise charged are then prosecuted through jury or bench trials, if necessary, or guilty pleas.
