PAC Welcomes Gang Resource Prosecutor
Morrow, GA – The Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia (PAC) is pleased to welcome John A. Regan to serve as the Gang Resource Prosecutor within the State Prosecution Support Division.
John earned his undergraduate degree from Wake Forest University and graduated from the Walter F. George School of Law at Mercer University. He has more than seventeen years of prosecution experience serving in various capacities with the Macon Judicial Circuit as an Assistant District Attorney. For the past thirteen years he was assigned to their Major Crimes Unit where he handled complex criminal cases including murders and gang prosecutions.
“I am humbled and honored to be joining the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council as the Gang Resource Prosecutor, says Regan. “I look forward to assisting prosecutors and law enforcement agencies across Georgia in combating gangs and gang violence. I have always admired the work PAC does in training and assisting prosecutors and am excited about working with the great staff and lawyers we have at PAC.”
As the Gang Resource Prosecutor, John will provide help desk support to prosecutors, investigators, and law enforcement throughout the state on gang-related cases. He will provide trial support to local District Attorneys’ offices, and most importantly, he will build upon PAC’s already established training efforts to give Georgia’s prosecutors the tools to hold the most violent offenders accountable and protect Georgia’s communities. John has been a vital faculty member at PAC’s Basic Litigation Boot Camp, a training program for new prosecutors, for the past eight years. He also has presented at PAC’s Summer Conference, PAC’s Fundamentals of Prosecution, the Georgia State Patrol Cadet Academy, and as a speaker for ICLE on the use of social media evidence in gang prosecution.”
“Gang crime is a statewide problem that requires a local solution,” said PAC Director Pete Skandalakis. “We must empower our local prosecutors and law enforcement to navigate through these complex cases. John brings a wealth of knowledge on this issue to our agency, and we look forward to continuing our collaborative partnerships and furthering our support to Georgia’s prosecutors.”
