Robin Myers, the assistant state attorney in Apalachicola, left his position last month.

According to Carol Houck, human resource administrator for Willie Meggs, the state attorney for the 2nd Judicial Circuit, Myers resigned Nov. 5 for personal reasons.

Apalachicola’s other assistant state attorney, Jared Patterson, will now become the office’s lead attorney, Houck said.

A young female attorney is expected to join the office Monday.

Moving into Patterson’s position will be Emily Frazier, who will begin Monday. Houck said Frazier is now to the state attorney’s office, after graduating in May from the University of Florida’s College of Law.

Houck holds a bachelor’s of science degree in psychology from the University of Central Florida, and has worked for the Agency for Health Care Administration and the guardian ad litem program.
