A former Mosley High School graduate has returned to his roots to join the 14th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office as its newest prosecutor, State Attorney Larry Basford announced.
Ali Elsagga, who most recently worked for the 6th Judicial Circuit State Attorney’s Office, began his new job prosecuting cases here Monday.
“It is always good when we can add a local attorney to our office,” Basford said. “We’re glad to welcome someone who grew up in and knows the Bay County community.”
Elsagga attended the University of Florida after high school and went on to get his law degree at Stetson University College of Law. He spent about 2 ½ years in the 6th Judicial Circuit before deciding to return to Bay County with his family to continue his career.

“One of the things I am most excited about is that I’m now part of the team that’s responsible for the safety of my home county, where I have family, and am part of the community,” Elsagga said. “I know this community, I know the people here, and I want to help keep it safe.”
Elsagga has experience prosecuting both felony and misdemeanor cases, including jury trials and bench trials, where the case is heard and decided by the judge. He is currently handling Bay County misdemeanor cases.
