Assistant D.A. Faces Felony Drug Charges

An assistant district attorney with the Mountain Judicial Circuit faces felony drug charges following his arrest last week.

Chief Jerry Ramos of the Grantville Police Department confirmed Monday that Bob Cullifer was arrested Thursday, Dec. 23, for possession of marijuana with intent to distribute and possession of drug paraphernalia.

According to the Coweta County Sheriff's Department, Cullifer posted a $6,000 bond on Dec. 24, and is scheduled to appear in Grantville Superior Court on March 16, 2005.

Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney Mike Crawford confirmed Monday that Cullifer has resigned his position. He would not give a reason for Cullifer's resignation or comment further. Crawford did say that Cullifer had been a prosecutor for close to 20 years, and had worked in the Mountain Judicial Circuit for about nine years.

I wonder how many drug cases he prosecuted in those 20 years? Details here from The Northeast Georgian.
