Finkelstein said Judge Darrisaw locked up people without due process and called for her to resign from her position back in January.

At that time Finkelstein said Darrisaw put the victims of crimes in jail. He claimed even one victim’s mother was locked up.

According to a letter the commission sent Darrisaw, the investigative panel determined those allegations do not establish any violation of the Georgia Code of Judicial Conduct.
