Ashton Jordan Hired By AG

Updated: Jul 2

Attorney General Chris Carr, joined by Senate President Pro Tempore John F. Kennedy and Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Director Chris Hosey, yesterday announced the hire of veteran prosecutor Ashton Jordan and seasoned investigator Nathan Shoate as part of an upcoming expansion of the Attorney General’s Gang Prosecution Unit. Starting July 1, 2024, Jordan and Shoate will oversee the Unit’s regional efforts in Macon-Bibb County, with funding provided in the state’s FY 2025 budget signed by Governor Brian Kemp in May 2024. Jordan serves as Senior Assistant District Attorney in the Griffin Judicial Circuit, and Shoate is a Senior Criminal Investigator with the Major Crimes Unit in the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office. In addition to Macon, the Attorney General will expand his Gang Prosecution Unit to include new prosecutors and investigators in Columbus and Southeast Georgia. This Unit is currently based in Atlanta, Albany and Augusta.


“Since creating our Gang Prosecution Unit nearly two years ago, we have seen unprecedented success in putting away some of Georgia’s most dangerous criminals,” said Attorney General Chris Carr. “Now we’re expanding our efforts to include a new regional team in Macon-Bibb County, so we can work more closely and effectively with all levels of law enforcement to combat violent crime and keep Georgians safe. We’re grateful for Governor Brian Kemp, President Pro Tempore John Kennedy, and our partners in the General Assembly for supporting our efforts since day one and continuing to prioritize the fight against gang activity in our state.”
