ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Law enforcement officers said goodbye Tuesday to former District Attorney Ken Hodges.

The 43 year old Hodges stepped down two and a half months before his term as D.A. Ended, to move to Atlanta and enter private law practice.

Hodges said he is proud his office stood up for crime victim's rights in court, prosecuting not only dangerous criminals but also corrupt law enforcement.

Hodges said "It's in good hands with Greg Edwards and everyone else here. So I feel good about it. It's always tough to leave somewhere where you have spent more than one quarter of your life. These are great friends and great memories and I'll cherish them forever."

Hodges is joining the Baudino Law Group, which specializes in national Health Law. Greg Edwards becomes the acting D.A. Wednesday.
