Embattled mid-GA judge: ‘I was just as lost as I could be’

January 28, 2010 --

A middle Georgia  judge belittled and argued with defendants, misstated points of law and improperly ordered jailers not to shorten inmates’ sentences for good behavior, witnesses told a judicial oversight panel in Atlanta today. Twiggs County Probate Judge Kenneth Fowler and his lawyer blamed much of the alleged misconduct on his lack of legal training. “When I first took office, I was just as lost as I could be,” Fowler testified.
