New prosecutor Kara Bremer begins SAO career

Kara Bremer, a Mitchell Hamline School of Law Dean’s List Recipient, is officially the newest prosecutor for the 14th Judicial Circuit, State Attorney Larry Basford announced Monday.

Bremer was sworn in as an ASA by Basford, and sworn in as a member of the Florida Bar, at her request, by Bay County Chief Mark Graham at a ceremony attended by other SAO employees and a number of Bremer’s family members who came for the event.

“I cannot imagine myself ever wanting to leave,” Bremer said in applying for the Assistant State Attorney position. “The teamwork and the mutual respect that you all showed for one another are enviable and admirable qualities for any work environment, and I would love to be a part of that.”

Bremer is active in her church and community and spent time as a teacher as well as watching cases in this circuit and working for a private attorney in Marianna.

Bremer will work misdemeanor cases in Bay County.
