As for "Don Barber," get real. You must have lost your mind! It's like playing baseball without a bat. You intended on going to court without an attorney? Get real. IT'S COURT. Everyone who is a player is or has an attorney. That is just the way it is in court. You were just the stupid guy who decided to buck the system! You got what you deserved. Too bad that you are so caught up in your own opinions to see that!
I disagree. I have lived here many years and there is so much good ol boy politics that if you have a lawyer from this county, you won't fare any better that if you try to represent yourself. The lawyers in this county are so tight with the the judges that even though they tell you they will cut you the best deal possible, they already know what that deal is going to be. You can cut the same deal with the prosecutors yourself and save yourself the money.

Being ACCUSED in this county is the same as being convicted even before a jury is introduced.

If you have read the Newnan Times Herald over the past few days you will see the lies written in the paper about the man th Newnan Police just arrested for the beating/rape of a 90 y/o woman. Unfortunately, the man they arrested was in Puerto Rico at the time. How can he be in two places at one time? The van that you taxpayers of Newnan are paying to have the GBI check out wasn't even owned by the man the police arrested at the time of the crime. Police say van was at the scene of the crime, I say go find the former owner! Police say the man attempted to sexually assault a 78 y/o female. Uh.....wait.....so this criminal gives his name/place of employment/residence address to a victim he plans on hurting, really? That wouldn't be very smart would it? I think that the Newnan Police made another mistake. They arrested someone previously, made him wait 8 months in Coweta Jail and DNA negative. Now they arrest someone who wasn't even in the US at the time of the crime and charge the poor man with the crime. I think that someone needs to hire new Police Detectives in Newnan. Ones that can actually solve a crime! I'm all about getting the man (men) who committed the crime. Don't just get any man, get the right man.
Newnan Police Scare the Heck out of me. Rogue cops. I cannot believe the Mayor would allow this type of behavior.

Be very careful. A real estate agent I contracted with and thought I knew (over 35 years) INSISTED I use this attorney for the closing attorney after I suggested I use the attorney I had used 2 years ago that was very reputable and I knew. The agent for the property we wanted to buy suggested a local attorney in his city, but my "TRUSTED" agent didn't let up in her choice of closing attorney. The entire "process" fell apart before it ever involved the one she insisted on. TG. A word to the wise (I was extremely stupid in this matter), do not use the same agent to sell your house and act as agent to buy the other house and DO NOT go to the lender they repeatedly tell you, "Oh, I really think he can help you" especially when you find the lending officer owned a company several years ago that shows under the Secretary of State site having had a revoked or surrendered license. A person that supposedly worked there was also involved in a federal case of fraud. According to the internet he was convicted. The elements sure seem to smack of collusion to me. Your comments are worth taking note of. My great-grandfather was a personal friend of Henry Grady, yes the hospital homage. My grandfather, a Ga Tech graduate with multiple degrees, as they say "Rested on his own bottom" i.e. he made his own integrity. He didn't have time for the twaddle that the pseudo "well heeled" crust of the scab so often do. Perhaps the aforementioned "cherished" local attorney might be of the age that retirement will lure him. Sometimes the world is better off. Isn't it so?

Have you ever noticed that good and ethical attorneys enjoy knowing the law and practicing it to keep our constitution alive and viable? You are better off going to legal aid or somewhere else to procure ethical and objective representation without conflicts of interests, laziness or questionable ability to represent anyone any longer. Good Luck to everyone in the little kingdom of Newnieland. The world is a different place and they are hanging on with their fingernails to the old and biased ways.

This is so sad. What a nice place for officers and investigators to tell us what they feel. 3 of the posters are cops in Coweta. Most are on a superman high trip. They think they are 'God' and think they can do anything they want any time they want. They enforce laws they don't even follow...AND THEY ENJOY watching people suffer. Well times are a changing!!!! KARMA is really 'God' taking his time to see if these "officers" will do the right thing. What will it take for them to see Lord? They swear under oath that they will not lie but instead lie more so they don't look like a dumba%^ police. Not all that wear the badge have this giant EGO but the ones that do will soon have their faces on T.V......Just need one, only one person to finish what they started. don't let it be swept under the rug.

JMSTR? Wow... hiding under anonymity, hunh? I probably shouldn't waste my time responding, since you can't even spell words like "liar" and "thief." It's obvious that whatever YOU did as a child, it certainly wasn't learning to read and write proficiently. You may want to start practicing.... I saw a really nice program on television recently called My Baby Can Read!Gud luck wid dat my frend.

As for Votemout's comment, isn't that what this is, a forum where people post their thoughts, feelings and opinions? Wouldn't you agree that everyone is entitled to do so, regardless of what they do for a living? I don't agree with your posting, but I accept that you have a right to express yourself...

i grew with mr. fetner also and we did some pretty dumb stuff as kids. but all in all mr. fetner is a good cop! he's is at time arrogant and conceded but he truley seeks justice and does a good job! as far as being kids and doing dumb stuff we all have skeletons from our past and things we did that we are not poud of-but we grow up and become adults. at least some of us do...and no that is not directed at anyone in this forum; just a general comment.

Although my situation is from a divorce, the coweta county judicial system is nothing but a big joke, life wrecking bunch that is out for every doller you can give! My husband of 13 years and sister-in-law of 18 years were confronted of the affair a few years ago; they robbed my blind, destroyed my credit, stole money , you name it and admitted it and got away with it! My brother and I have been punished for this and treated so unfairly! I hate Coweta County! Gus Wood is the atty for ex and ex sster-in-law and he is as crooked as you can get, an old crooked drunk to say the least but he has the power over all the judges to get it his way regardless of the situation! I am having both divorce files investigated and the attys we all have used in this are also under investigation! I would love to fry their asses! I am not going to stop until I get someone of higher power to stop this !!!! My sympathy is with you ! Move the hell out of the county!
I hear ya!! my situation was with the attorney John Tucker..Long story short they found it fit for my brother two raise one of his children and gave his other child to his ex wifes brother and sister in law..How can you be fit to raise one child but not the other? who the Hell does that? COWETA COUNTY..John Tucker was and is such a sorry lawyer that now he is a court apponited attorney, and we all know they do absalutly nothing lol!!I moved from that county for many reason this being one of them..I will NEVER go back!!

Most cops in this County and the City are on power trips. How do I know? Oh I've been involved with L.E. for many years here. Note that I said most... there are in fact still some great mean and women out there patrolling and investigating. But know that shoddy leadership at both the county and city run many high quality officers off, I've seen it time and time again. Just like any profession there is undoubtedly corruption, seen it with my own eyes... but what can you do? It's undeniable the county and the city are still on the "good old boy system"... it's painfully obvious. I've seen people go from jailer to investigator in the blink of an eye and people more qualified for promotions with more time be denied promotions. The County 911 center is another prime example of the blind leading the blind and a place where corruption flourishes. If some of the cops and dispatchers were as interested in doing their jobs as they were getting laid by anyone that isn't their spouse we'd have a safer community.

Honestly, not trying to low rate any one paticular lawyer in Coweta County. I would have to say that I have seen alot of them in action, and my conclusion would be that they are truely unskilled professionsals for the most part. Now thier is a selected few that are pretty good. One I recommend would be Michael Kam, now he's prices are steep. You maybe better off finding a Lawyer out of Atlanta as good as Kam for a lot smaller fee. Unless you have connections with the judge for your case, I would shop in Atlanta

I wouldn't use Mike Kam if he was the last attorney in Newnan! Charges way to much and he doesn't even show up for court on the court date! Sends someone else who doesn't even know your case?? Sounds good up front but hates trials and would rather buddy up with his friend ADA RM and plea you out! Instead of doing his job! Avoid Mike Kam!!!! And who has 25k on hand to pay an attorney! If you had that kind of money probably would not need an attorney in Newnan!! Just saying

I am very sorry to hear about your experience with Mr. Stokey, but my personal experience with him and the court employees was very professional and helpful. He exited the courtroom while court was in session, researched my issue, called me back and explained everything to me.
I would guess he must not be a rude person as explained to post and do not see a reason to classify a person as such.
Wish you have resolved everything by now
