Former Judge Reprimanded For Moving To Terminate Sentences He Imposed

A former chief judge of the Dalton Municipal Court has been publicly reprimanded by the Georgia Supreme Court.

After concluding his judicial service in 2010, the former judge

...agreed to represent three individuals then serving probationary sentences that [he] himself had imposed as a judge of the Municipal Court, and on behalf of those individuals, [he] filed motions in the Municipal Court to terminate their probationary sentences. [He] undertook to represent these individuals and filed their motions to terminate their probation without the consent of the city of Dalton.

The former judge defaulted on the charges and refused to accept responsibility for his actions. (Mike Frisch)
