Dougherty County District Attorney's Office
Gregory W. Edwards, District Attorney
The District Attorney's office exists to prosecute those charged with criminal violations which occur in the Dougherty Judicial Circuit. In addition, the District Attorney, supported by his office staff, represents the State in their legal remedies, when the State is involved in certain civil actions. This office attends pre-trial hearings, grand jury sessions, trials in Superior, State, & Juvenile Courts; prepares indictments for the Grand Jury, and prepares accusations for filing in order to bring cases to trial. The office also handles all past conviction appeals.
The District Attorney must prosecute fully those who, according to the best evidence available, have committed criminal violations. He or she must protect the victims of crimes as well as the interest of the people.
