Jeannine Malone, the city of Sandy Springs’ assistant solicitor, has resigned a month after taking the job, following news of her husband, who was arrested in the fall on federal drug charges.

Thomas W. Malone Jr. in September pleaded guilty in Federal District Court to charges of conspiracy to distribute a dangerous controlled substance, synthetic marijuana, through his Alpharetta-based business, NutraGenomics. He is set to be sentenced later this month.

Sandy Springs officials were told late last month Jeannine Malone was married to a convicted felon after they were notified by Lance Dyer of Bremen, who has been investigating NutraGenomics. Dyer has looked into the company since March, when his 14-year-old son committed suicide after taking a synthetic drug.

Sworn in as assistant solicitor for Sandy Springs’ municipal court Dec. 3, Jeannine Malone resigned Tuesday after the city learned of her husband’s criminal charges.

She is a graduate of Georgia State University College of Law and previously clerked for Fulton County Superior Court Judge Ural Glanville and interned in the DeKalb County Recorders Court.
