D.A.'s office won't get two employee slots

June 4, 2007

Albany --  District Attorney Ken Hodges says he won't ask for two additional positions to be staffed by the county, since they helped his office out last year.

Three positions were funded by the county commission last year for a felony child prosecution unit, after Open Arms had to drop a contract to pay for the positions because of financial troubles.

Hodges had asked commissioners for three additional positions, two secretaries and an investigator, because the juvenile court caseload has grown tremendously in the past few years.

County Administrator Richard Crowdis instead recommended only one position be funded, and Hodges agreed since commissioners are continuing to pay for the unit.
