ALBANY, GA (WALB) - One of two Terrell County men accused of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana is out of jail.
A committal hearing was scheduled Thursday morning in Terrell County for Johnny and Charles Hansel. Before it started, an agreement was reached to allow a $5,000.00 bond for their release.
Charles Hansel was released on bond, but his father remains jailed pending federal charges. Both were charged earlier in June with conspiracy to manufacture marijuana when more than 1,400 marijuana plants were discovered growing in their homes in Terrell and Randolph County.
Officials with the Georgia Department of Corrections announced that a goal for offenders to get vocational certificates for the 2018 fiscal year was surpassed. The goal for the year was 7,000, but as of May 1, a total of 7,799 vocational certificates have been issued.More >>
