Deputy Chief ADA Katie Gropper Appointed to Sexual Offender Registration Review Board

Gov. Brian Kemp has appointed Katie Gropper, deputy chief assistant district attorney, to serve on a state board dedicated to protecting Georgia residents from convicted sexual offenders.

The Sexual Offender Registration Review Board (SORRB) meets monthly to review cases from throughout the state to determine if sexual offenders are likely to re-offend or engage in a crime against a minor. After conducting assessments, the Board classifies offenders as a Level 1, Level 2, or sexually dangerous predator.

“I am honored to serve the state of Georgia on this Board,” said Gropper. “As a prosecutor, I am invested in protecting our communities from sexual offenders, but the role of the prosecutor in our system of justice is largely reactive. My appointment to SORRB is an opportunity to be proactive in preventing future victimization by ensuring the most dangerous sexual offenders in Georgia are identified and distinguished from those who are less likely to re-offend.”

As deputy chief of the Special Victims Unit, Gropper handles crimes involving child and elder abuse. Gropper has dedicated her career to the prosecution of sexually based crimes against women, children, and other vulnerable populations.

“We are pleased to see Katie Gropper take a leadership role in Cherokee County and beyond,” said District Attorney Shannon Wallace. “I am confident she will make an immediate impact on the important work SORRB performs in keeping our communities safe.”
