Suspect Sought in Sexual Assaults
– East Atlanta Patch

Atlanta police have released a sketch of a man they say posed as an undercover police officer and fondled two teenaged girls last month in Lakewood Heights.

The victims, 16 and 17, told police the suspect identified himself as an undercover police officer and walked them to the far wall of a building next to a gas station and fondled them as he conducted a "pat-down."

The girls then said he ordered them to kneel and after they complied, he told them to strip. Visit East Atlanta Patch for more on this story.


Attorney General Appeals Ruling in Kennesaw 'Self-Defense' Killing
- Kennesaw Patch

Georgia Attorney General Sam Olens will ask the state's highest court to reject a ruling that could have freed a Kennesaw man convicted of killing an armed trespasser in 2005.

Despite pleas from the nation's oldest civil rights organization not to do so, Olens Wednesday filed a notice of appeal in Baldwin County. A judge there ruled last month that John McNeil received "ineffective" counsel during his trial and suffered prejudice because jurors were not informed that they could acquit him "based on his justified defense of his son." See Kennesaw for more on this story.
