LaBravia Jenkins has held on to her job as Fredericksburg’s commonwealth’s attorney.

City voters today formally elected Jenkins as chief prosecutor, the post she was appointed to when former prosecutor Charles Sharp was selected as a Circuit Court judge.

Jenkins had 707 votes in the special election today, defeating Joseph Hicks, an attorney in private practice and Eric Olsen, an assistant commonwealth’s attorney in Stafford County, according to unofficial returns. Hicks had 674 votes and Olsen 648.

Jenkins has served as deputy commonwealth’s attorney in the city for several years and previously was a prosecutor in Spotsylvania County and a public defender. She is a graduate of George Mason University’s school of law.
