CUTHBERT, GA (WALB) -

Ex-Georgia State Trooper Jaa Tucker of Early County pled no contest to two counts of Violation of Oath of Office by a Public Officer, Tuesday.

Tucker pled before the Honorable Judge Joe Bishop, and was sentenced to two consecutive five year terms of probation, and a $1,000 fine.  Tucker also must surrender his Peace Officers Standards and Training certificate, and is not allowed a position in law enforcement during the term of the probation.

This plea stemmed from a January 16, 2013 arrest, after Tucker had been indicted by the Early County Grand Jury.

They returned a true bill, saying that Tucker stole marijuana evidence, and distributed that evidence.

This was the result of an investigation that began over two years ago.
