Georgia Trooper Sentenced for Stealing Evidence

Posted by Richard Lawson | May 22, 2014 | 0 Comments

Jaa Tucker, a former Georgia State Trooper, pleaded no contest Tuesday to 2 counts of Violation of Oath of Office by a Public Officer in front of Early County Judge Joe Bishop.

Tucker was sentenced to 2 consecutive 5-year terms of probation and a $1000 fine.  He also has to surrender his Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Certificate, and cannot be in a law enforcement position during the terms of probation.

Tucker was arrested after an investigation 2 years ago that alleged he stole marijuana evidence and sold it to make money.

The plea came after a January 16, 2013 arrest after an indictment by the Early County Grand Jury.  The Grand Jury had returned a “true bill,” meaning they had decided there was probable cause to support the charges so they voted to return an indictment and began criminal proceedings.
