โ€œThe heart that gives thanks is a happy one, for we cannot feel thankful and unhappy at the same time.โ€ ~Douglas Wood

Ensuring that the voices of victims and survivors are heard is the most critical part of our work in the Western Judicial Circuit D.A.โ€™s office.

Earlier this month, an Athens-Clarke County jury found defendant Ricky Darnell Grisson guilty on one count of rape, child molestation, and incest. The Honorable Judge Lisa Lott sentenced Grisson to life without parole.

Assistant District Attorney Kelly Williamson was the prosecutor in this case. Other court team members included Investigator Takia Taylor and Victim Advocate Stephani Stewart.

We want to thank the victim for her display of bravery in testifying, the courageous survivors, our dedicated team members, our law enforcement partners led by Detective Dara Shapland, and our community partners from The Cottage and ACC-SANE, who were critical in our office being able to prosecute this case successfully.
