Albany judge fills in for Dawson court

May 17, 2004

Dawson- Dawson has a new judge in town, for a while anyway.

Monday night, Albany Municipal Judge Willie Weaver took over as the interim municipal court judge in Dawson. Weaver replaces Judge Henry Williams who was fired last week.

Williams drew criticism for sentencing a Dawson man to 11 years in jail for repeatedly ignoring court orders to clean up his junky yard.

Weaver was appointed municipal judge in Albany in March.
