Defendants could seek indictments dismissal
Attorneys: Others charged may follow Akins' lead
Placeholder Image
Attorneys for at least two other defendants may follow the example of former Bulloch County Clerk of Courts Sherri Akins' attorney in filing motions to quash indictments. However, Eastern Judicial Circuit District Attorney Gregory McConnell said a grand jury could be called to reconvene and indictments could be handed down again if the matter is revisited. The Eastern Judicial Circuit has handled the case since its beginning because Ogeechee Judicial Circuit District Attorney Richard Mallard and his office recused themselves from the case, citing a close working relationship with the Bulloch County Clerk's Office and its employees.
