Atkinson County - Edwin Davis, Chairman of the Atkinson County Commission has resigned his position effective July 12th.
Davis sent a letter of resignation Tuesday afternoon after he did not show up to the morning commission meeting.
The letter highlights the accomplishments of his six and a half years as commission chairman. However, it does not state his reason for leaving.
Tony Rowell of Douglas was also hired as the new county attorney. He replaced Berrien Sutton, an attorney from Clinch County. It is not clear at this time whether Sutton resigned or was asked to step down.
Court officials in Cook and Clinch Counties say Sutton's name came up in recent subpoenas handed down the by Federal Bureau of Investigation. They were asked for documents regarding his appointment as Juvenile Court Judge by Chief Superior Court Judge Brooks Blitch.Court documents were subpoenaed from all counties in the Alapaha Judicial Circuit. Those counties include Atkinson, Clinch, Cook, Berrien, and Lanier. The subpoenaed documents seem to focus on orders by Judge Blitch and an account he created in Clinch County that paid several employees $70,000 since 2002.
When called, Sutton would not comment whether or not the change of position was due to the FBI probe.
