Billy Lee has been a nightmare for Coweta County for 32 years. Good riddance. How will his family spin this. Hopefully better than the Camp family!

Good point Breakaway! the JQC had enough to remove Billy Lee from office so you know that there is enough for a civil rights prosecution! Skandalakis is weak! He avoids death penalty cases like the plague. Remember the cop in Villa Rica that was shot dead on the side of the road. Despite the public outcry, Skandalakis refused to seek the death penalty against this cop-killer. It is interesting that anti-death penalty lawyers are the only ones that had the guts to expose Billy Lee's criminal activity. Makes you want to hire a Newnan attorney to represent you, doesn't it?!? Haha

All great points! As far as Newnan attorneys go, none of them will have a judge in their pocket now that Billy Lee is gone. Oh no...what will SKIN EDGE do? hahaha

Pete Skandalakis is just as corrupt. He needs to be thoroughly investigated. He has stood by and allowed unethical behaviors to happen and even participated in a few. Someone needs to take a good hard look at the Clint Reynolds prosecution and the part Skandalakis and others from his office played in the civil proceeding between Reynolds and his wife. Skandalakis has covered up other corruption as favors. And finally someone (this watch dog group or whoever) needs to look at how often several of his employees actually come to work. When you call in 6+ months in one year and still collect a full salary that is stealing. Also, what about campaigning on State time? I think the list can go on and on. Maybe now that they got Judge Lee they will keep looking at all of Coweta Co.

Hopefully they look at all the people in the DA's office! That short over weight bald ADA needs his friendship with Kam looked at also! Think there are sooo many unethical behaviors going on in this County is sad. But in time all those that think they are righteous will be judged and it comes around in the end. Good bye Billy Lee and good riddance no more sleeping during trials you can nap on your own time now! My dad thinks your a joke!

The word that you unsuccessfully sought is you're, the contraction for you are. You mistakenly used the word your which shows possession. Maybe you should seek an education before you seek a forum.

Hey Just Saying!
Great information. Employees of the DA's office are public employees. If they are abusing their positions by not reporting to work, then the matter should be investigated and resolved. If you believe that you have credible information just post which office and the approximate dates the offenses occurred. An investigation will ensue. Do t give names unless you are just saying. Thanks

He's retiring while under investigation. What a piece of work. This whole "good ole boy" system needs to be put to a damn stop. It's ridiculous. Isn't there supposed to be justice in the judicial system? Maybe I was taught wrong in school & in life. Good riddance. Dirty law system we got owing on here.

The continued misuse of the personal pronoun possessive case indicates the necessity for your return to school. A resumption of the sixth grade would be in order. One loses the ability to make a valid point by the poor command of the written language.

when will you stop? Anyway Judges should uphold the law. It's this day and age that they all seem to think they are God! Even if they know the English language! Let's elect all new judges! Cranford is the most respected out of all them.

Obviously Mooseknuckle doesn't have much to say on the matter....so go to another forum so that we can comment on the subjuct matter. As an outsider who did not grow up here but has worked in the county for close to 30 years, I have heard about this "judge" Lee and a few of his cohorts....its just downright embarrassing. He sounds a little like Boss Hog from the Dukes of Hazard. Anyway, its about time that the crooked have gotten caught!
