PJP calls for judge's review

April 15, 2004

Dawson -- A judicial watch-dog group is calling for an investigation of a Terrell County Judge. The Prison and Jail Project in Americus is asking for the Judicial Qualifications Commission to review Judge Henry Williams.

The complaint stems from a ruling involving a Dawson teenager on April 5th, in which they say Judge Williams violated the standards of judicial conduct by making an inappropriate comment during the teen's sentencing.

The Prison and Jail Project filed another complaint against Judge Williams a year ago, but it was thrown out.

Citing judicial canons, Judge Williams could not comment on the complaint.
