Chatham County's chief prosecutor is facing a tough re-election fight amid charges of mismanagement and discrimination. Four years ago, Democrat Larry Chisolm became Savannah's first new county prosecutor in nearly three decades. His opponent Meg Heap says an exodus of staff followed, leading to prosecutorial inexperience.
Georgia death row inmate Troy Davis lost his life this week, but the public relations battle over his death continues. A man who stayed on the sidelines of that battle spoke publicly about the case. Spencer Lawton was the Savannah District Attorney who prosecuted the Davis case in 1991 and until this week has refused to comment on it.
