District Attorney Keith Higgins has selected Whitney Bradford to assume the duties of Deputy Chief Assistant District Attorney responsible for Appling County and Jeff Davis County.

Deputy Chief Bradford came to the Brunswick Judicial Circuit from the Cordele Judicial Circuit, where she worked as an Assistant District Attorney since 2015. As a prosecutor, she has previously specialized in cases involving crimes against women and children, and has prosecuted a range of criminal cases from misdemeanors to serious violent felonies. Deputy Chief Bradford grew up in Cook County and received her Bachelor’s degree in Marketing from Valdosta State University and her Juris Doctorate from Mercer University in 2014. Prior to becoming a prosecutor, Deputy Chief Bradford worked as a staff attorney for the Honorable Tilman E. Self, III, currently a judge on the US District Court for the Middle District of Georgia, who at the time was a Macon Circuit Superior Court Judge. Deputy Chief Bradford has a passion for justice and helping victims and is eager to work with the citizens of both the Appling and Jeff Davis communities.

According to Higgins, “Finding and hiring competent and professional prosecutors has been an ongoing challenge throughout the United States and within the state of Georgia. With the addition of Whitney to our office, we now have three dedicated prosecutors, including Senior Assistant District Attorney Jan Kennedy and Assistant District Attorney Hunter Smith, to serve the citizens of Appling and Jeff Davis counties.”
