To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I would like to express congratulations to Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit Assistant District Attorney J. Skye Gess of Sparta on her appointment by Gov. Nathan Deal to serve as solicitor general for the Baldwin County State Court.
As solicitor general, Ms. Gess will benefit from her six years of experience in the legal profession, including the past five years as a prosecutor in the Ocmulgee Circuit.
Georgia’s solicitors general fulfill an important responsibility in our criminal courts and to our state. We wish Ms. Gess well in this new capacity of leadership in the justice system.
Kenneth B. Hodges III
President, State Bar of Georgia
