Ellis' career up to Governor

April 15, 2004

Nashville - Governor Sonny Perdue must decide if an indicted South Georgia District Attorney stays on the job while he is prosecuted.

Alapaha Circuit D.A. Bob Ellis is charged with three counts of civil rights violation and one count of witness tampering.

Once he receives an official copy of the indictment, Governor Sonny Perdue will decide whether or not to appoint a review commission to determine if Ellis can stay in office. That commission would be made up of Attorney General Thurbert Baker and two other state prosecutors. They will review the case and make a recommendation to the Governor on whether or not Ellis should be suspended until his trial is over.

According to the Secretary of State's office, Ellis can still qualify to run for re-election on April 26th unless he is convicted of a felony.
