Reason 7,655 you should never, ever call the police (even if you're a "victim")
A judge in Forsyth Superior Court ordered yesterday the release of a man who was jailed for contempt after he didn't testify against a girlfriend who was accused of assaulting him.
Prosecutors in domestic court had expected Ronald Wayne Childress Jr. to testify Tuesday against his girlfriend, Jennifer Lynn Atwood. However, when Childress took the stand, he testified that Atwood had not assaulted him.
Judge Chester Davis of District Court nonetheless found Atwood guilty of simple assault and sentenced her to four days in jail. Davis then ruled that Childress had lied under oath and sentenced him to four days in jail as well.
So what do we know about Judge CHESTER DAVIS?
