It would appear to me that there are two tiers in the southeast Georgia justice system.

Let me see if I can get this right. If I’m a former State Court Public Defender with two DUIs and a record of domestic violence, I can get a solid DUI arrest dumbed down to a “reckless driving” charge with 40 hours of community service and a little anger counseling. Do you think an aging housepainter could get the same deal?

I’m not going to go out tonight and try it, but I can’t help but wonder how that might turn out.
