Jonesboro attorney Greg Hecht represented a portion of Fayette County during the 1990s and qualified as a Democrat.
Hecht, who served four years as an assistant district attorney in Clayton County and also served in the Georgia legislature, said he wants to address problems with the Department of Family and Children Services since the attorney general's office is responsible for preparing DFCS workers to testify in court to protect children from abuse.
"The Attorney General needs to be an experienced prosecutor committed to leading the charge against public corruption, regardless of party. We have to take politics out of the office, roll up our sleeves, and provide the checks and balances for all Georgians to be protected from corruption and abuse," Hecht said.
