Turnover in Nashville DA's office after leadership change

Print | Front Page | Email this story

NASHVILLE (AP) - More than a quarter of the assistant prosecutors in the Davidson County District Attorney's Office have left in the past year since getting a new boss.

According to an analysis of human resources data conducted by The Tennessean (http://tnne.ws/1FMRBWs), at least 17 assistant district attorneys left after criminal defense attorney Glenn Funk won the election last May to replace 26-year Nashville District Attorney Torry Johnson, who did not run for re-election.

Eleven of the departed had worked in the office a decade or more, and at least six were in leadership positions.

President of the Association of Prosecuting Attorneys David LaBahn says turnover is expected when there is a leadership change in public office.

Funk says his hires are as qualified as those who have left.
