DECATUR CO., GA (WALB) - A sentencing for three Deputies in Decatur County is pushed back again.
Former deputies Robert Umbach, Christopher Kines, and Elizabeth Croley are now scheduled to be sentenced on March 15th in Albany Federal Court. Last June, another law enforcement officer was acquitted of violating a man's civil rights.
Prosecutors say the other three tried to cover up excessive force during that arrest. Croley was convicted of depriving the suspect of his rights and false reporting. Kines and Umbach were found guilty of witness tampering.
