Dozens of Georgia correction officers face criminal charges

Cell phones are the center of years-long federal investigation into possible illegal behavior in some of Georgia's state prisons. Approximately 50 prison correction officers were arrested on criminal charges of accepting bribes and participating in drug trafficking activities. Most recently, a number of corrections officers and inmates were indicted on these allegations.

Local Georgia mayor jailed for criminal charges

A Georgia mayor is currently behind bars after being arrested by police officers in his own town. Police believe that he operated a local government vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, although he never actually submitted to any type of blood-alcohol content testing. Although these are not the first criminal charges that the mayor has faced, prior accusations should not play a role in current criminal proceedings.
