Frederick H. Agee, a Milan attorney currently serving an active duty tour in Kuwait with the Army Reserve, was this week appointed district attorney for the 28th Judicial District by Gov. Bill Lee, the Jackson Sun reports. Agee will be released from active duty later this month and will quarantine for two weeks in Texas before being sworn in to begin serving the district, which covers Gibson, Haywood and Crockett counties. Agee, who has been a defense attorney in Milan his entire career, will be the only veteran currently serving as a DA in the state’s 31 districts. “That’s not necessarily something I set out for, but I’m proud of my military service and I’m proud to represent veterans in this capacity,” he said. Agee will fill the vacancy created by former DA Garry Brown’s retirement. The position will be up for election in August 2022.
