State legal professional common to DA Fani Willis: Once more, no Brooks case recusal

0
18

Willis wants another prosecutor to take the case against former Atlanta police officers Garrett Rolfe and Devin Brosnan. Rolfe is charged with felony murder for fatally shooting Brooks in the back at a Wendy’s parking lot. This happened after Brooks resisted arrest and broke free after assaulting Rolfe. Brooks also took Brosnan’s Taser and then unsuccessfully tried to fire it while fleeing. Rolfe is also charged with other felony offenses, while Brosnan is charged with aggravated assault and violating his oath of office.

Willis had also asked Carr to disqualify her office from the case involving six Atlanta Police Department officers who used their Tasers on two college students during civil unrest in May 2020.

On Feb. 11, Willis wrote Carr that she was “both disappointed and concerned” about his decision. “I maintain it is in the best interests of justice that a separate office handle these cases,” Willis wrote.

She noted that Georgia law says the attorney general “shall” appoint a new prosecutor upon a DA’s notice that he or she has a conflict. At an orientation seminar for newly elected DAs late last year, a member of Carr’s own office said a DA’s decision to recuse would be final and respected, Willis noted.

In a May 2020 interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Carr said pretty much the same thing when referring to his replacement of DAs in the fatal shooting of Ahmaud Arbery near Brunswick.

When asking Carr to reconsider her request in the Brooks case, Willis said, “I do not believe you have the lawful authority to reject my recusal.”

The next day, Chief Deputy AG Wright Banks Jr. responded. The initial decision “remains in place,” he said.

In a statement issued Monday, Willis continued to disagree.

“The attorney general’s position is contrary to what he has stated is the role of his office in the Arbery case, it is contrary to the position of legal ethics experts and it jeopardizes achieving justice for everyone involved in these cases,” Willis said. “That said, I took an oath to do my best to achieve justice in every case, and I will do so whatever the circumstances.”

Richard Hyde, former chief investigator for the AG’s office, had strong words regarding Carr’s decision.

“In the past, the attorney general has advocated for high ethical standards for public officials,” he said. “Here, it appears we now have one who wants less.”

Last night just before 2AM, Officers patrolling the residential areas in the vicinity Brandon Mill Rd near Dalrymple Road spotted a suspicious vehicle that had been reported stolen. As Officers attempted to stop it, the vehicle immediately took flight, crashing almost head-on with another SSPD Officer’s patrol car. This high speed impact disabled the stolen 2012 Porsche Cayenne and four of the occupants were immediately apprehended while the fifth occupant was captured a short time later after a foot pursuit. Fortunately the Officer was not injured as a result of this collision and neither were the suspects. nnThe investigation has reveled these 5 offenders to be connected with multiple entering-auto crimes (car break-ins). Two stolen handguns, ski masks, tools for the commission of crimes, and several stolen items were located and submitted as evidence. Two of the suspects had active warrants for entering-auto crimes. The suspects have been identified as: 23 year old Atif Hereford from Atlanta, 21 year old Jariquez Hall from Atlanta, 23 year old Demarquez Hall from Atlanta, 23 year old Darnell Presley from City of Forsyth, and 17 year old Horace Parks from Atlanta. nnThe suspects have been charged with multiple offenses to include: theft by receiving stolen property (vehicle, guns, etc). Possession of a weapon by a convicted felon, fleeing to elude, obstruction, possession of tools for the commission of a crime, among others.

Atlanta police officers are investigating a hit-and-run crash that happened Wednesday night where they were surprised to find the suspect and his sedan only made it as far as the hotel lobby. Houston Garner, 32, of Canton, is accused of backing into the glass entry doors of the Sheraton Atlanta and driving his car through the lobby to get away from the pursuing officers, according to Atlanta police. He was eventually apprehended on an upper floor of the hotel, police spokesman Officer Steve Avery said. Police were called to the Courtland Street hotel about 11 p.m. after a woman said a black car hit her vehicle in the parking lot and drove off. She sustained minor injuries but was not taken to a hospital, Avery said. ÒWhile officers were still on scene a security guard at the hotel advised officers that the hit-and-run vehicle, a black Volkswagen Passat, had just backed into the hotel doors causing damage,Ó the spokesman said in a statement. When the officers tried to speak with the man, later identified as Garner, he took off again, Avery said. ÒThe driver refused to comply and drove away, eventually driving through the entrance and into the lobby of the hotel,Ó he said. Garner was arrested on charges of hit-and-run, reckless driving, failure to maintain lane, criminal damage to property and obstruction. He was taken to the Fulton County Jail for the second time in a month. Garner was just released from custody Friday after posting an $8,000 surety bond. He faces charges of theft by receiving stolen property, drug and weapon possession, and driving on a suspended or revoked license stemming from a Jan. 23 arrest in Sandy Springs, jail records show. Bond has not been determined on his most recent charges.
