Seven guards at Macon State Prison have been charged in connection with an alleged inmate beating, the GBI announced today. The guards were accused of aggravated battery in connection with an assault that resulted in an extended hospitalization for one inmate.
A North Georgia judge faces a public reprimand next week, apparently for verbally abusing and threatening several GBI agents. Superior Court Judge Kristina Cook Graham faces the music at 11 a.m. Tuesday at the Chattooga County Courthouse, the Judicial Qualifications Commission announced today. She presides in the Lookout Mountain Judicial Circuit, where the slogan is “Wisdom, Justice and Moderation.”
