PROSECUTOR BACK HOME
An experienced prosecutor who was raised in Lunenburg County is now the Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney there.
Jordan A. Spiers, a 30-year-old former prosecutor in Mecklenburg County, started her duties July 1st.
Ms. Spiers lived in the Dundas area of Lunenburg County with her mother, Lori Bacon, and her step-father, Wellington “Bubba” Bacon, Jr., from age five.
Commonwealth’s Attorney Robert Clement said he and the county “are extremely fortunate to have Spiers, especially with her experience, legal skill, and her ties to Lunenburg. She was able to step into the courtroom on her first day here and handle every type of case. She has a great work ethic and a wealth of knowledge of criminal law and procedure.”
Prosecutor Spiers graduated from Virginia Tech with two degrees -- Political Science and Sociology -- in 2012. She graduated from Campbell Law School in 2015. She interned five summers in the Commonwealth’s Attorney’s Office of Brunswick County, and served nearly five years in Mecklenburg.
Prosecutor Spiers stated, “I’ve been very fortunate to have learned from three Commonwealth’s Attorneys and apply this experience to my home community. I am very grateful for this opportunity and look forward to learning more and serving all of the citizens of Lunenburg County.”
Ms. Spiers succeeds former assistant Baxter Stegall, who recently moved to Monroe, North Carolina to serve as legal counsel at his family’s business, Stegall Petroleum.
