@jmh79: § 15-11-65. Dispositional hearing for delinquent or unruly child; evidence in proceedings; continuances and scheduling.
(a) Dispositional hearing for delinquent or unruly child. If the court finds on proof beyond a reasonable doubt that the child committed the acts by reason of which he or she is alleged to be delinquent or unruly, it shall proceed immediately or at a later time to conduct a dispositional hearing for the purpose of hearing evidence as to whether the child is in need of treatment, rehabilitation, or supervision and shall make and file its findings thereon. If the court finds that the allegations of delinquency or unruly conduct have not been established, it shall dismiss the petition and order the child discharged from any detention or other restriction theretofore ordered in relation to the allegations. If the child is to be held in custody at a detention facility between the adjudicatory hearing and the dispositional hearing, the court shall conduct the dispositional hearing within 30 days of the adjudicatory hearing unless the court makes and files written findings of fact explaining the need for the delay. In the absence of evidence to the contrary, evidence sufficient to warrant a finding that acts have been committed which constitute a felony is also sufficient to sustain a finding that the child is in need of treatment or rehabilitation. If the court finds that the child is not in need of treatment, rehabilitation, or supervision, it shall dismiss the proceeding and discharge the child from any detention or other restriction theretofore ordered.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 17:39

[quote][b]Trip_McNeely[/b] - Great work by Ofc. Cochran.
On another note, I'm a big fan of Joe Johnson and work, but wish he could have been a little more specific on where this occurred. By no means do I want the exact address, but would like to know what area of the westside this happened.
Trip, we normally don't even report on suicides or suicide attempts unless they happen in a public place. I reported this incident to give a shout-out to the officer for a great job. I purposely left the location vague to protect the woman's identity because she is obviously disturbed. I'd hate to report something that could possibly publicly embarrass her and cause further duress.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 15:41

@YoungSarge: There were redactions in the report, but the paramedics determined he had "low" something, leading me to assume this man might be diabetic and his blood sugar was low. When that happens you become disoriented.posted @ Thursday, May 16, 2013 - 14:45

He is being prosecuted as an adult. The motion is to sever his case from the other two defendants, and if granted he will have a separate trial in Superior Court.posted @ Thursday, May 9, 2013 - 16:43
[quote][b]Tewise[/b] - Oglethorpe County never charged them? Wasn't the one murder done in Oglethorpe. Joe, do you know anything about it? I see Elbert county they had two murders so basically this sentence was for that. How do they have jurisdiction over Oglethorpe Co.?
Oglethorpe did indict. Both counties are in the Northern Judicial Circuit so for convenience sake sentencing on both cases was done in one location.posted @ Wednesday, May 8, 2013 - 12:58

[quote][b]CharlotteLadyGardner[/b] - We read about felons breaking probation/parole on a daily basis in Athens! When is this going to STOP? [/quote]
CLG: I'm not sure if you and other folks are reading about this more because I take the time to research the histories of offenders when they are arrested for felonies. It could be that this has been happening all along, and was just not reported on like I do. I'm actually undertaking a project to find out if things have gotten worse or not, but it's going to be a long-term thing because there is no data base that's exclusively for repeat offenders in Athens-Clarke County.posted @ Monday, May 6, 2013 - 11:58

Mr. Davis was very nice when I interviewed him when all this happened in 2007. He used to have his own bands and still played guitar. After reluctantly speaking with this reporter through a cracked door, we found we had something in common and he allowed me in where we took turns playing songs and then played along with each other.posted @ Friday, May 3, 2013 - 13:59

Rep. Regina Quick, R-Athens, was one of two local delegates to score less than an "A+" in the Chamber of Commerce's annual legislative score card. She and I played phone tag Monday when I was reporting the story and I wasn't able to get her comments in a timely fashion. Instead, she sent over this statement Wednesday morning and she did not mince her words. (Links and italicized portions are my own; otherwise, it's as she wrote it.) Dear Friends: read more
The committee opted Tuesday night to put off deciding on the ordinance until, at the earliest, its next meeting. Of note: The Athens-Clarke County attorney highlighted that the proposed times are, in essence, placeholders for the commission to change or keep as it pleases. Full text of the Use of Public Right-of-Ways ordinance draft is below. read more
