Pelham-- An update on a story we brought you last night. State officials say a disabled south Georgia man should not have been evicted from his home.
John Thornton is a double amputee. He moved out of his apartment in Pelham Wednesday. He says his eviction notice stated the apartment is not handicapped-accessible, so it's not safe for him to live there.
A community service board called Georgia Pines handles Thornton's housing through Shelter Plus, a federal program that provides housing and other services to hard to reach people in need.
Georgia Pines Executive Director Bob Jones says the Department of Community Affairs issued them a citation after inspecting Thornton's unit. Jones says the citation meant they were not in complaince and the program risked losing funding for 19 other tenants in the apartments.
DCA officials say they did issue a citation because Thornton's apartment was not handicapped-accessible. But they expected Georgia Pines to fix Thornton's unit or find another apartment for him.
So where's Thornton now? He's gone from his own apartment, which he said suited him just fine, to a homeless shelter in Thomasville.
