Judicial Misconduct Allegations in Georgia

Atlanta ,Georgia USA

Cook County attorney stepped forward Monday as a candidate for judge in the troubled Alapaha Judicial Circuit, where incumbent Judge Brooks Blitch is the target of two separate corruption investigations.

Blitch is under investigation by the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission, which has accused him of 13 instances of judicial misconduct, and by the U.S. Attorney’s office as part of a four-year long corruption investigation of the circuit.
