Attorney Billy Joe Nelson Jr. took the oath of office Thursday in Ludowici as the new assistant district attorney for the Atlantic Judicial Circuit of Georgia.
Nelson was sworn in by Superior Court Judge Robert L. Russell III during a recess at the Long County Courthouse.  
“I’m thankful for the opportunity to serve in the Atlantic Judicial Circuit, and I appreciate all of the support that has been shown to me in that regard,” Nelson said.
