Cobb County, Georgia, District Attorney Flynn D. Broady Jr. and Executive Assistant District Attorney Latonia P. Hines, will be keynote speakers during its annual Communications School in May. The Cobb County District Attorney's office received national attention when it prosecuted three men who were charged with killing Ahmaud Arbery during a racially-motivated hate crime. Broady and Hines will share their experiences with handling the national media attention and intense public scrutiny.
