Albany-- An indictment did not keep Dougherty County commissioner Brenda Robinson-Cutler from Monday's commission meeting.

Cutler attended the commission meeting, less than a week after being indicted on theft and racketeering charges.

She's accused of stealing from disabled clients at the Albany Advocacy Resource Center. The Governor is expected to appoint a panel to investigate whether she should keep her seat on the commission while awaiting trial.

But until that happens, Cutler says she'll keep coming to the meetings. "I will continue to come to county commission because I'm going to continue serving my people."

"Did you steal money Brenda," I asked. "No comment," replied Cutler as she walked away.

Cutler turned herself in at the Dougherty County jail Wednesday and was released on a $5,000 bond. She was indicted on one count of racketeering and 13 counts of theft by taking.
