Former Prosecutor Indicted for Misconduct in Ahmaud Arbery Case


According to reports, the former prosecutor in the Ahmaud Arbery murder case has been indicted on misconduct charges for allegedly using her position to shield the men who chased and killed Arbery. 

A grand jury indicted former Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney Jackie Johnson on a felony count of violating her oath of office and a misdemeanor offense of hindering a law enforcement officer. 

“While an indictment was returned today, our file is not closed, and we will continue to investigate in order to pursue justice,” said Georgia Attorney General Chris Carr. The indictment comes after an investigation was launched last year looking into how Johnson handled the situation.
