Attorney withdraws from suspended sheriff's eavesdropping case
After the Georgia Bureau of Investigation filed additional charges against suspended Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby, one of the attorneys representing him in the eavesdropping case has withdrawn from the case.
This morning, Norman Crowe filed a notice with the court after additional warrants were issued for Hobby. These additional charges are for eavesdropping and surveillance.
Crowe was specifically named in the new warrants issued as an attorney whose privacy was compromised with client conversations.
Attorney Robert Walker is now the only attorney representing Hobby.
The suspended sheriff remains in the Lowndes County jail awaiting a bond hearing scheduled for Friday morning.
