Cell phones are at the center of a dozen indictments that Georgia inmates and prison employees allegedly used to coordinate various criminal efforts. Most of the allegations involve drug charges and allegations of possession of various contraband substances such as tobacco. Identity theft was also a concern that prompted the initial investigation.
Allegations of sexual assault or abuse are usually handled quite seriously, and for good reason. While protecting victims is an important aspect of pursuing these types of criminal charges, the defendant must also be protected from unfair judgment and wrongful accusations by the public and media. For instance, a Georgia official who was recently arrested for alleged sexual misconduct is still entitled to his rights, including the presumption of innocence according to the law.
With the popularity of so-called real life law enforcement shows, some police officers have been accused of taking things too far. According to some, when a camera is present, many cops will go to great lengths to ensure an arrest. After being arrested on what she says were false drug charges, a woman in Georgia is only one of many voices speaking out against this practice.
