The Albany City commission, meeting in an executive session, voted to allow Municipal Court Judge Willie Weaver to have paid administrative leave for up to 90 days. Weaver requested that action.

Weaver attended the meeting and spoke to the members. He was then asked to step out of the room.

He would not speak to reporters.

Weaver faces criminal charges for striking his wife in the face with a beer bottle two weeks ago.

Denise Fachini, the District Attorney for the Crisp County Circuit has been appointed special prosecutor for the case after Dougherty D. A. Greg Edwards recused himself.
