Valdosta -- A group of South Georgia assistant district attorneys say they'll ignore a furlough and work for free.  

Seven ADAs in the Southern Judicial Circuit based in Valdosta volunteered to work one week next month without pay. A state budget shortage forced the furloughs of some assistant district attorneys around the state.

"The DA's budget provides nothing but salaries and little bit of travel. We made it clear to them that if they did not fund our need then we would have to furlough people," said Southern Judicial Circuit DA J. David Miller.

The District Attorney's Association and Prosecuting Attorneys Council voted Monday to furlough the ADA's whose salaries are paid for by the state.

The group in Valdosta chose to continue to work even though they won't get paid for seven of the 21 working days in June.
