Albany -- The state has ended their probation for Woody Hart, the former Dougherty County assistant police chief, convicted of bribery and perjury charges in 2001.

The 56-year-old Hart has been on probation since October, 2003 when he was released from federal prison.

Hart paid a 15-thousand dollar fine in restitution and completed his assigned community service. He was to serve ten years on probation.

His probation officer asked for the termination, because Hart has conducted himself in a law-abiding manner. Hart is still on probation to federal authorities.

Last month, Hart filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit against District Attorney Ken Hodges and three employees of the Department of Corrections for false imprisonment.
