Going from defender to prosecutor

June 12, 2008

Albany--An Albany attorney wants to step across the courtroom aisle and go from defender to prosecutor.

On Thursday night Ingrid Driskell held a meet the candidate event to try to convince voters she's the right person to be the next Dougherty District Attorney.

She has served as a Municipal Court Solicitor in Albany and Leesburg.

She wants to improve communication between Law enforcers and prosecutors as part of an overall effort to keep you safe.

"I am about making Albany-Dougherty County safe, I want to prosecute good cases and make sure that Dougherty County citizens are treated fairly. I've been a criminal defense attorney for the last 15 years and I see the good and the bad, I think It's time for a change in Albany-Dougherty County and I think I'm the right person to make that change," said Ingrid P. Driskell, Dougherty County District Attorney Candidate.

Driskell is running against current Chief Assistant DA Greg Edwards.
