Former KFC manager pleads to drug charge

Nashville, GA -

A former manager of the Kentucky Fried Chicken restaurant in Nashville, GA is serving 12 months probation after his guilty plea to misdemeanor marijuana possession.

Jim Harris was arrested at the fast food restaurant in July 2011.

He was initially charged with two felony counts of possession of a schedule II controlled substance, one count of felony possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony, and one count of misdemeanor possession of less than an ounce of marijuana.

Court records show that in March 2013, Harris entered a guilty plea to the misdemeanor marijuana possession charge and the three felony counts were dropped.

He was sentenced to 12 months probation.

Harris, who is from Alapaha, no longer works at that KFC.
