Dawson man, 20 others removed from sex offender registry following court ruling
A Dawson County man and 20 others were removed from the Georgia sex offender registry following a Georgia Supreme Court ruling. In May, the Georgia Supreme Court ruled on a Chatham County case of a man who pleaded guilty to aggravated sodomy in 1995. He was given a 10-year sentence with the first two years to be served in prison. In February 2013, the Georgia Board of Pardons and Paroles granted him a pardon, saying he was a “law-abiding citizen and … fully rehabilitated,” according to the Supreme Court of Georgia’s summary of the case.
