GA Prosecutor Still Working After Prostitution Charge

Print More

Two weeks after he was arrested in connection with a high-end prostitution ring, a Gwinnett County, Ga., prosecutor is still on the job, reports the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Assistant District Attorney Christopher Quinn, 46, was one of 56 people arrested last month when police cracked down on the “Gold Club” and “Lipstick and Shoes,” which authorities described as high-end escort services operating out of local apartment complexes. Arrest warrants previously allege that Quinn was caught on camera having sex with a prostitute. Gwinnett County District Attorney Danny Porter said that a full two weeks after his Jan. 17 arrest, Quinn is still employed, although he is no longer going into courtrooms or arguing cases,.

Porter said he’s waiting to get more information about the case, and that he doesn’t believe in suspension with pay. So Quinn, who previously played roles in arguing appellate court and pre-trial death penalty motions, is now “performing limited duties” by helping prepare briefs and other documents for fellow prosecutors. “The questions that I have are still up in the air,” Porter said. “His involvement in [the alleged prostitution ring], in terms of involvement in the organization, as opposed to being just a customer, the number of times that he was a customer, all those things are going to play into my decision.”
