Christopher Quinn, a former Gwinnett County assistant district attorney hired by South Georgia Judicial Circuit district attorney Joe Mulholland last year, was indicted Thursday and charged with pandering.

Quinn, 47, was arrested in January 2017 after Dekalb County busted a prostitution ring he was allegedly involved in. He resigned from his position shortly thereafter and was hired by Mulholland in March 2017.

Tuesday, the Dekalb County grand jury indicted 62 individuals involved with the high-end escort service that was operated out of a Dunwoody apartment complex and other locations throughout Atlanta. Quinn was among those names listed in the True Bill.

Quinn has been working mostly in Grady County since his hire last year.

Mulholland insisted that Quinn has brought a level of experience and ability with him to successfully prosecute major cases in the South Georgia Judicial Circuit.

“This incident, which occurred before his employment in our office and Dekalb (County) has now rightfully charged as a misdemeanor, hasn’t had any bearing whatsoever on his ability to be a great asset in our office as an assistant D.A.,” Mulholland said.

“As far as I am concerned this is now a private matter for he and his family. I think he has learned from this I am sure it is an isolated incident. We are going to move on, and I’m sure he will do a great job for our circuit as he has already proven and is doing.”
