Deputy prosecutor is terminated
Martin Lilly will no longer be serving as Poinsett County Deputy Prosecuting Attorney.
District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington said in a statement released last week that "it became necessary to terminate his appointment as a deputy prosecuting attorney. Since this is a personnel issue I will not elaborate further.
"Poinsett County has a competent deputy prosecuting attorney in Jimmy Gazaway, and I have every confidence in his abilities. I will soon make an announcement as to who will fill the vacancy created, in that office, by my decision," Ellington said.
"The citizens of Poinsett County can always trust I will make their safety and the integrity of my office my primary goal in serving them."
