Cherokee County District Attorney Shannon Wallace has been appointed as the newest member of the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia.

Wallace was selected to fill the position previously held by former Cobb County District Attorney Vic Reynolds, who was recently appointed to serve as director of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

The PAC Council consists of nine members including six district attorneys and three solicitors general. Wallace has served as district attorney for the Blue Ridge Judicial Circuit since 2013, having previously served as chief assistant district attorney in the same office. She has nearly 17 years of prosecutorial experience.

“Shannon has served the citizens of Cherokee County passionately during her time as district attorney,” said Council Chairman George Hartwig, district attorney for the Houston Judicial Circuit. “The council is pleased to have her on board.”

Wallace graduated with honors in 1999 from the University of Georgia with a Bachelor of Arts in psychology and criminal justice. She graduated with honors from the University of Georgia School of Law in 2002.
