Coweta Circuit has New Acting DA

West Georgia Region -- Next week, the Coweta Circuit District Attorney's office will be led by a third person since the start of the new year. Governor Nathan Deal has appointed Herb Cranford as acting D.A. He should hold the position for all of 2018, if not beyond.

Cranford takes over after former District Attorney Pete Skandalakis left to serve as the Executive Director of the Prosecuting Attorney’s Council of Georgia.
Skandalakis' Chief Assistant District Attorney, Monique Kirby, was sworn in as acting district attorney on January 4th.

Cranford will be sworn in on February 7th.

Cranford has worked as an assistant district attorney in the Coweta office for the circuit court. He started working for the Coweta Judicial Circuit after graduating with a Juris Doctor from Mercer University in 2012.

Voters will decide if Cranford will stay in that role in 2019. A special election will be held in November for the position. Cranford said he plans on running.
