Buzz: Bartee trial next month
Buzz in and out of the Oconee Courthouse is that the State will call for trial the case against James Bartee the week of August 26. But a spokeswoman for the Solicitor’s Office would say only today that the Bartee trial will be announced once her office publishes the trial docket. Such dockets are usually published about a week or a week and a half ahead of a court term. Bartee withdrew from last year’s race for Sheriff after being arrested on the charge of solicitation to commit a felony.
