ALABAMA — Longtime Assistant District Attorney Scott Lloyd has formally retired from the DeKalb-Cherokee County District Attorney's Office after 25 years of service.

Lloyd is a 1989 graduate of Plainview High School, a 1993 graduate of Auburn University with a B.A. in Economics, and a 1996 graduate of the University of Georgia School of Law. 

Lloyd's wife, Laura, made a statement on her husband's career via Facebook: 

"I've watched him work tirelessly for the citizens of our Circuit, always committed to doing the right thing even when the right thing was not the most popular...While change can be difficult, sometimes God guides us down new paths in life with new opportunities for growth. We are excited to 'turn the page' to this next chapter." 

Lloyd began his own private law practice on October 1. He was succeeded in his position of Assistant District Attorney by Summer McWhorter Summerford.
