The state constitution calls for a 14-day waiting period before the governor convenes a panel to decide if Brooks should be suspended from his office.
If the representative is suspended, the seat will remain vacant until the next regularly held election or until the case is adjudicated in his favor.
After two weeks, Gov. Deal will convene a panel comprised of Olens, a senator and a representative.
The panel’s decision is final.
Brooks was charged earlier this month with misappropriating nearly $1 million in charitable donations.
A federal grand jury indicted Brooks on charges that he misappropriated almost $1 million in charitable funds from Universal Humanities, a charity he founded in 1990, and the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials (GABEO).
