South Georgia Prosecutor Resigns

Updated: 7 years ago.

South Georgia's chief federal prosecutor is stepping down. U.S. Attorney Edmund Booth, Jr. said today that he'll resign next month after working for more than 38 years as a federal government lawyer. Booth's statement says, he's looking forward to work in the private sector. President George W. Bush appointed Booth to the job of South Georgia's chief federal prosecutor in 2007. His resignation allows President Barack Obama to name a successor.
