  • In Memoriam: Wm. Lee Robinson



    The Georgia Public Defender Council mourns one of its own. Macon Circuit Public Defender Wm. Lee Robinson passed on November 4, 2015, after a hard-fought battle with cancer. Lee’s contributions to his city, state, and country are unparalleled. In addition to serving as CPD since the agency’s inception, Lee also served as the Mayor of Macon, a State Senator, and a Colonel in the U.S. Army. Further, Lee devoted much of his time and energy to philanthropic and civic causes. He was respected by his colleagues and beloved by his family, friends, and community.┬áHe will be missed deeply.
