ronnieBRUNSWICK, Georgia – Authorities said a Georgia lottery winner’s “unsound investment strategy” involved using his $3 million to start his own business — as a crystal meth dealer.

U.S. Attorney Ed Tarver said Ronnie Music Jr., 45, of Waycross, pleaded guilty to drug trafficking and firearms charges last week in a Brunswick federal court.

Tarver said Music won $3 million from a Georgia Lotter scratchers game in 2015 and was arrested in September of that same year when he and a group of accomplices were found with 11 pounds of crystal methamphetamine, worth more than $500,000, they were apparently trying to sell.

Prosecutors said they also seized $600,000 cash, firearms, thousands of rounds of ammunition, and multiple vehicles in the course of the investigation.  More

Georgia appeals court says ‘upskirting’ not against the law

Posted By Staff

Date: July 25th, 2016

upskirtATLANTA – A man admitted he surreptitiously took cellphone video up a woman’s skirt while she shopped at a grocery store, but a Georgia court said he didn’t break the law.

A divided Georgia Court of Appeals this month tossed out the conviction of former grocery store employee Brandon Lee Gary, who recorded videos up a woman’s skirt — known as “upskirting” — while she shopped.

The 6-3 majority opinion said Gary’s behavior, while reprehensible, doesn’t violate the state’s invasion of privacy law, under which he was prosecuted.

In a ruling issued July 15, Judge Elizabeth Branch said it is “regrettable that no law currently exists which criminalizes Gary’s reprehensible conduct.”  More
