Homerville - A south Georgia Judge is indicted on Federal Perjury charges.

The Associate magistrate judge in Clinch County, Linda Peterson, is charged with perjury and making false statements.

Court records say in March of 2006, Peterson set a 50 thousand dollar bond a James Tucker who had been arrested for possession with the intent to distribute marijuana. The indictment reads that Peterson then suggested her father could act as bondsman for a fee which would go towards her home renovation.

The federal indictment goes on to say she then lied to FBI agents and when questioned in court about the matter. She could face up to five years in prison for each count.
