The Georgia Supreme Court will not hear the Dougherty District Attorney's office petition to reverse Judge Willie Lockette's decision to throw out a jury verdict.

In November 2009 a Dougherty County jury found 38-year old Christopher Weaver guilty of 38 theft,conspiracy,and racketeering charges.

Prosecutors say Weaver bilked Alltel out of nearly a half million dollars over four years, faking work orders and charging them for work never done.

In March 2010 Judge Lockette threw out the jury's guilty verdict because the case was based on circumstantial evidence and hypothesis.

The Georgia Supreme Court voted 4 to 3 not to hear the D.A. offices petition to reverse the Judge's decision, so Weaver will remain free.
