To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to congratulate Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit District Attorney on his recent selection as District Attorney of the Year by the District Attorneys’ Association of Georgia.
Mr. Bright is well-deserving of the honor in light of his 32 years of service of prosecuting criminal cases in Baldwin, Gray, Greene, Hancock, Jasper, Morgan, Putnam and Wilkinson counties, including 19 years as the circuit’s elected district attorney.
Criminal prosecutors provide a vital service to the public and the rule of law, which in turn helps fulfill the constitutional promise of justice for all. We applaud the District Attorneys’ Association for honoring Fred Bright with this prestigious award.
Charles L. Ruffin
President, State Bar of Georgia
