Sentencing for the three former Decatur County Sheriff’s deputies convicted this past summer in federal court is scheduled for December 29.
The hearing will begin at 10 a.m. on the morning of Dec. 29 at the federal courthouse in Albany, Ga.
Originally, the sentencing hearing was scheduled for December 10. However, the attorney for Chris Kines–Kermit Dorough–filed a motion to re-schedule because he would be involved in an unrelated trial starting Dec. 7.
A fourth defendant, former Grady County Sheriff’s deputy Wiley Griffin IV, was found not guilty of violating the constitutional rights of Aaron Parrish.
Here is a review of the jury’s verdicts:
