To the Editor:
The State Bar of Georgia congratulates Henry County Magistrate Court Judge Stephen N. Knights Jr. on his appointment by Gov. Brian Kemp to serve as a judge for the Henry County State Court.
Judge Knights will be well served by his 16 years of experience in the legal profession and justice system, including the past two years as a Magistrate Court judge in Henry County. He previously served as a judge for the Clayton County Magistrate Court, assistant district attorney for the Clayton and Griffin Judicial Circuits and assistant solicitor general in Clayton County.
Through his acceptance of this appointment, Judge Knights demonstrates his continued commitment to serving the public and the justice system. We wish him well in this new position of judicial leadership.
