More Cleaning House In The Alapaha Judicial Circuit

On the heels of the resignation several weeks ago of Chief Judge Brooks Blitch III of Homerville, comes news that State Court and Juvenile Court Judge Berrien Sutton has also resigned from that South Georgia circuit, as reported by the Clinch County News.

Sutton was the subject of charges of unethical conduct by the state Judicial Qualifications Commission. According to Sutton’s attorney, Thomas Withers of Savannah, the JQC has agreed to drop the charges against Sutton. Sutton was set to go before a JQC panel on those charges on May 8 in Adel before the agreement was reached.
