Fulton judge defends release of trooper shooting suspect
January 3, 2011 --

A Fulton County judge had no choice last month but to release the man who allegedly shot and killed State Trooper Chadwick LeCroy a couple weeks later, the county’s chief judge said tonight. Gregory Favors was freed on a signature bond not because of “judicial whim or an adherence to some arbitrary self-imposed rule,” but because judges “have a duty to uphold the rule of law,” Judge Cynthia D. Wright wrote in a letter to Fulton County citizens.
