Former assistant chief released from prison

March 14, 2003

Albany- Woody Hart served time in an Arkansas for pleading guilty to bribery in a one million dollar embezzlement case.

Dougherty County District Attorney Ken Hodges says Hart should serve 3 additional months of a state sentence. He says the federal government would not release Hart to Dougherty County deputies or transport him to an in-state federal facility-- something Hodges says very unusual.

"I am completely at a loss as are the people in the attorney general's office and the Department of Corrections that I talked to today as to why this is happening. This just doesn't make sure sense, its illogical but we're trying to deal with it," Hodges explains.

Hodges says he expects that Hart will have to report to the Georgia Department of Corrections on his own. If he fails to do so... officials will issue a fugitive warrant which could result in another 8 year sentence.
