The District Attorneys’ Association of Georgia recently recognized Sen. Butch Miller of Gainesville for his ongoing leadership in strengthening Georgia’s criminal justice system.

Charles Spahos, Executive Director of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia, presented the award to Miller on behalf of the District Attorneys’ Association on Wednesday at the monthly Hall County Bar Association luncheon.

During the 2013 Legislative Session, Miller worked with his colleagues in the Georgia General Assembly to secure the passage of House Bill 242 – a landmark juvenile justice reform package that called for substantial changes to the state’s outdated juvenile court proceedings. This bill package, along with the comprehensive criminal justice reform bill passed during the 2012 Legislative Session, have already improved recidivism rates, saved taxpayer money and assisted non-violent offenders re-enter society as productive citizens.
