Update: A Democratic candidate for the U.S. House 9th District seat was released from the Gwinnett County Jail Monday, July 13, after being in custody on a contempt of court charge.
Brooke Siskin was jailed because she had violated an order in a domestic case by having a weapon and ammunition in her possession. When she surrendered the gun but not the ammunition in a Gwinnett County court Thursday, July 9, she was jailed.
Siskin told The Times on Monday she had been released and was returning to court to surrender the ammo. Gwinnett sheriff’s records no longer show her being in jail.
“This is a personal issue, but also an issue I feel strongly about, and that is, women and domestic violence victims should be able to have protection,” she said of the case.
This is Siskin’s second arrest this year. She was charged with disorderly conduct in March after an incident at her Gwinnett bank. That case hasn’t come to court yet.
Siskin who faces Devin Pandy in an Aug. 11 runoff. She was the top vote-getter in the June Democratic primary, with Pandy second.
