With guilty pleas to felony charges, a South Georgia judge on Wednesday became the state’s eight jurist to leave office this year after being investigated on allegations of misconduct
Camden County Probate Judge Shirley Wise pleaded guilty to three counts — theft by taking, theft by deception and violation of her oath of office — District Attorney Brian Rickman said.
Wise was sentenced under the First Offender Act to seven years on probation and fined $1,000. She also turned over $5,500 in restitution to the Camden Board of Commissioners and agreed to not seek or accept appointment to public office.

The JQC had referred its initial investigative findings against Wise to the state Attorney General’s Office, which then appointed Rickman, the district attorney for the Mountain Judicial Circuit in northeast Georgia, to oversee any possible criminal prosecution.

There is no Tiger Mountain in Waycross. I know the song that came from but that Tiger Mountain is fictional.

I've lived in Georgia my whole life and been all over the state from top to bottom. I have never ever heard of Atlanta as being referred to as part of South Georgia. You're really grasping for context there.

Another judge accused of misconduct

By Rhonda Cook
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
A South Georgia judge is under investigation over allegations that he let politics and friendships dictate his actions in court.
The notice of the investigation came days after another judge pleaded guilty to three felonies and became the eighth state jurist to leave office this year after allegations of misconduct.
Grady County State Court Judge J. William Bass Sr. is accused of being vindictive against people he believed had supported his political opponent; of asking for a pay raise for his part-time work based on the amount of money he collected in fines; and of exceeding his authority in setting fines to “maximize” revenue collection for the county.
