A Southeast Georgia judge accused of misconduct is resigning. Glynn County Superior Court Judge Amanda Williams ran the state's largest drug court but came under investigation for tyrannical behavior. The state's judicial watchdog agency accused the judge of jailing inmates indefinitely, giving preferential treatment and violating her oath of office.
The incumbent is facing his first election since being appointed by Gov. Sonny Perdue. His main challenger has mounted an aggressive campaign aimed squarely at the incumbent's integrity. His other challenger is nowhere to be found.
