Middle Georgia Police Do Time on Weekends

Two Middle Georgia police officers, convicted of a crime, are continuing to work for the Roberta Police Department while serving time on the weekends.

Part-time patrolmen Scott Moore and Floyd Berger show up at the Crawford County jail on Saturday mornings and leave again on Sunday afternoons. On Monday they return to work.

The two were charged with making a false statement and false report of a crime following an incident where the two found cocaine on a man and reported it as marijuana. Moore was found guilty after trial, and Berger pleaded guilty.

Superior Court Judge Bobby Peters of Columbus sentenced them to five consecutive weekends in the Crawford County jail.

Roberta police officials say the two can remain on the force as long as they are certified by the Georgia Peace Officers Standards and Training Council.

That council voted to revoke the officer's certification, but the cases are under appeal.
