ATLANTA (AP) — A judicial circuit in Georgia has a new top prosecutor.
Gov. Brian Kemp on Friday appointed Chase Studstill as district attorney of the Alapaha Judicial Circuit.
Studstill will fill the vacancy left by Dick Perryman, who was promoted to superior court judge of the Alapaha circuit. The circuit is comprised of Atkinson, Berrien, Clinch, Cook and Lanier counties.
Since 2017, Studstill has been a public defender in the Tift Judicial Circuit.
