“There are many sad things to come from this case but one of the most disheartening is that your office did not even try.”

- Sgt. Scott Prah, ACCPD (on the lack of justice for victims following DA Gonzalez’s refusal to review evidence in a horrific rape and aggravated sodomy case)

Recent Developments in Deborah Gonzalez’s Office:

Update #1: Please see the following document related to a jury Questioning on March 13, 2023 by Ms. Gonzalez wherein she questioned a Juror who Ms. Gonzalez had previously called him a racist.


Update #2: Ms. Gonzalez personally handled this very serious trial involving the aggravated assault of a female in Athens-Clarke County in front of her children. The Defendant was found Not Guilty on all counts after Ms. Gonzalez only put up 55 minutes of testimony after previously estimating that the trial would take 3 days. Ms. Gonzalez failed to: 1) Call the victim’s husband who witnessed the crime; 2) Play the 911 call; or 3) Put into evidence any photos of the victim’s injuries that were available.


Update #3: Please see the following article by Law360 Legal News titled "Athens DA Unilling And Unable To Do Job...".

Update #4: Applicant consents to Jury or Bench Trial for Writ.

Update #5: Ms. Gonzalez’s Office lost another jury trial. This was a one count misdemeanor disorderly conduct case. Her office did not send this case to state court to be prosecuted by the solicitor general who prosecutes misdemeanors every day. If they would have done so, they could focus on the back log of major felony cases. Instead they proceeded to lose the simplest of misdemeanor charges in a jury trial.
