Albany-- No one is sure how long Ken Hodges and Greg Edwards will be out of work at the Dougherty District Attorney's Office. They were injured in a car crash Tuesday. But the rest of the D.A.'s staff say their work will continue without interruption.
One of the busiest people at the Dougherty D.A.'s office is Donna Kent, the receptionist for the Felony Division. Kent has been answering constant phone calls since D.A. Ken Hodges and Chief Assistant Greg Edwards were injured in a car crash. Hand said" It's been very hectic."
Dick Hand is the third ranking prosecutor. As Chief Assistant of the State Court Division, Hand says all the prosecutors' work is covered. Hand said "That's the way the office was designed to function. So if we lose people, we can pick it right up and go. And that's what we are doing."
The September term of Superior court is less than one month away, but Hand says all the cases have been assigned to staff prosecutors. Hand said "I think there may one or two of them we have to continue, but I think probably the majority of them will go on to trial."
Ken Hodges is now being treated in private room at a Macon hospital. Edwards was released from that hospital Thursday.
