Mathe honored by State Bar of Georgia’s Young Lawyers Division

Ari Mathe of the Northeastern Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s Office in Gainesville received the 2008 Award of Achievement for Outstanding Service to the Public from the Young Lawyers Division of the State Bar of Georgia. The award was given during the organization’s annual meeting June 6 at Amelia Island, Fla.

Mathe received the award for her contributions to the Model Juvenile Code Project of the Juvenile Law Committee of the Young Lawyers Division.

The Youth Lawyers Division has more than 25 committees that produce an array of projects and programs. Through the years, the Young Lawyers Division has gained national recognition by winning several American Bar Association awards for its projects and publications.

The Model Juvenile Code was completed and released to the public on March 13 and can be found online. The Model Code is being used by Just Georgia, a coalition group of child advocacy organizations in Georgia, to help revise the Georgia Juvenile Code.

North precinct selects deputy of the month

Forsyth County Deputy Marvin Boggus has been selected as the North Precinct’s Deputy of the Month for May 2008, Precinct Commander Capt. Mark Flowers announced.

Boggus, who was employed with the sheriff’s office in February 2008, was selected among his peers for his outstanding work in April. According to Flowers, Boggus’ selection for this honor comes in part as the result of his apprehension of two suspected drug dealers on March 6.

During the year, each precinct recognizes a Deputy of the Month. At the end of each year, a Deputy of the Year is selected from the 12 monthly award winners.
