“The questions that I have are still up in the air,” Porter said. “His involvement in [the alleged prostitution ring], in terms of involvement in the organization, as opposed to being just a customer, the number of times that he was a customer, all those things are going to play into my decision.”
Porter said he’s not sure when he might get the information he wants to make that decision.
He did say he was surprised by the allegations against Quinn, who has been with the Gwinnett County District Attorney’s Office for “three or four years" and had a lengthy career with the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office before that.
“He's an excellent lawyer with a great legal reputation,” Porter said. “It's just a stunning sort of departure from what I would've expected.”
Quinn was charged with pandering and violation of Georgia’s felony racketeering statute and was released on bond two days after his arrest.
Quinn’s defense attorney, Noah Pines, did not immediately respond to requests for comment Monday morning. He has previously called his client “an outstanding lawyer who finds himself caught up in the system.”
