Georgia prosecutor booked into jail for mishandling Ahmaud Arbery case

The former prosecutor charged with misconduct in the Ahmaud Arbery case was booked into a Georgia jail the same day three men were convicted of murdering the Black jogger.

Former Brunswick Judicial Circuit district attorney Jackie Johnson turned herself in Wednesday morning at the Glynn County jail and later released on her own recognizance after she was indicted last week on a felony charge of violating her oath of office and a misdemeanor count of obstructing police, reported the Associated Press.

The 49-year-old Johnson allegedly used her authority to discourage police from making arrests in the 25-year-old Arbery's killing

Three men -- Travis McMichael, his father Gregory McMichael and neighbor William "Roddie" Bryan -- were found guilty Wednesday afternoon on a variety of charges, including murder, in the killing.

1. Well, not exactly "booked into jail." She was charged.

But she hasn’t served a day, and I doubt she will.

Sickening, and I hope it costs her a lot of money.

2. Agreed!

It should cost her a lot in future employment opportunities, too.
Being a prosecutor looks good on a résumé, but not when the gig ended with charges of malfeasance.

5. I read somewhere the complaint said she held "affection" for one or more

Of the murderers.

6. This lady needs to be disbarred

In addition to violating the law, this lady violated her oath as a lawyer
