Albany-  The Prosecutor's office is charged with protecting victim's rights and Wednesday a south Georgia Assistant District Attorney was praised for his actions.

Dougherty Chief Assistant District Attorney Greg Edwards was awarded the state's Eagle Award for putting victim's rights first.

The award is given annually by the Criminal Justice Coordinating Council which oversee the state's victim's assistance programs. It's awarded to prosecutors who have allowed victim's to have a voice in the courtroom.  Greg Edwards said he was honored to be this year's recipient.

"I was very thrilled and humbled to have received this recognition it sort of has followed what I've always tried to do. I've always considered my work as a voice of victim's rights as much as I could possibly be and this recognition is a validation of my efforts and I was really appreciative of receiving this recognition," said Greg Edwards, Chief Assistant District Attorney.

Greg Edwards was nominated for the award by District Attorney Ken Hodges and Victim's Services Director Sybil Collins.

Edwards is running for Dougherty District Attorney along with Ingrid Driskell.
