a little unusual that the Sheriff can tear up a ticket. Isn't that the job of the Courts? If anybody but the Court orders a ticket "disposed of", that would be ticket fixing.
Actually, tickets issued by the Sheriff's department are property of the Sheriff's department. The Sheriff can legally dismiss etc.. the citation. Also due to an influx in calls to the Georgia State Patrol Post the Commander granted the Sheriff the authority to review and take action on a GSP citation should it be necessary. So no, it's not "ticket fixing" and technically if a citation should or could be dealt with BEFORE court that is more helpful than hurtful. Also I have seen Sheriff Deweys own family have to pay tickets so I can personally ashure you that if a ticket is lowered or dismissed it was reasonable. However; I will say this in 5 years I have never seen anyone "tear up" a ticket much a less a woman so that person wasnt being truthful.

I can accept that as being factual, and legal I suppose. Sure is a slippery slope though. Personally, I like the idea of ticket disposition by the Courts only. Whether in chambers or open court, I just don't personally feel that once a cop writes a ticket, it can be made to go away without a Judicial officer looking at it first. Your point is well taken.

BOUTWELL IS A REAL ASS AND WILL EVENTUALLY CAUSE THE COUNTY TO GET SUED FOR BIG BUCKS. Gutless Dewey likes him so guess he and P. Kimble can run the Dept.
All Dewey knows is what he learned from the crook Chafin - so what can we expect. Dump this Mayberry hick now before it is too late . Sorry to let you know but Brooks Count is still Mayberry but worse with more crooks.y

I hope they make Chafin, if found guilty to serve as inmate labor until his sentence is complete. I'm sorry that has happened to what I know are very good folks in Brooks County. We have some problems of our own up here in the north and we are trying to replace him with what we know is an honest man.

Looks like you were right. It took a while to come to the surface but now it's here in all its stinking glory.
