27 enter guilty pleas during Dougherty Drug Week

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The Dougherty District Attorney calls his office's second annual Drug Week a big success and a big cost saver for taxpayers.

27 people entered guilty pleas out of 43 drug cases brought Monday and Tuesday in Dougherty Superior Court.

D-A Greg Edwards said getting all the witnesses and drug agents together at the same time for multiple cases is the most efficient way to handle felony drug cases.

"Most of the cases are made by drug unit officers", said Edwards.  "And again we can have everything in one place so it is efficient in terms of our witness usage and preparation."

There will be two sentencing hearings tomorrow morning to end drug week in Dougherty County.
