Expanded jury pool for August 26
A larger than normal jury pool is being summoned for this month’s Oconee General Sessions Court. A court officer has confirmed to 96.3/WGOG NEWS as many as 250 Oconeeans are being called for potential jury duty the week of August 26-30. It’s that week, for which there are indications, that the State will call the case of James Bartee. The former Oconee Sheriff’s candidate faces the charge of solicitation to commit a felony during last year’s campaign.
