Georgia Sheriff Pleads Guilty to Assaulting TV Judge Glenda Hatchett in Hotel Incident

Published:

In a shocking turn of events, Bleckley County Sheriff Kristopher Coody has entered a guilty plea to the charge of sexually assaulting prominent TV Judge Glenda Hatchett. The incident, which occurred in January 2022 at a Cobb County hotel, has garnered significant attention due to the involved parties.

Police charged Sheriff Coody with sexual battery following an incident at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly on Galleria Parkway. According to a warrant obtained by Media Take Out, the incident took place in the hotel’s bar, where Coody allegedly placed his hand on Judge Hatchett’s breast without her consent.

The arrest sparked outrage, with supporters of Judge Hatchett and women across the nation calling for appropriate action against Coody. Despite the public outcry, the Georgia governor’s office did not deem the incident worthy of terminating the sheriff from his position.

However, the recent developments have seen a shift in the case. Sheriff Coody pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of sexual battery in court on Monday, August 21. As part of his sentence, he has been placed on 12 months probation, ordered to complete 40 hours of community service, and fined $500, as reported by Fox 5.

As a result of his guilty plea and its aftermath, Sheriff Coody has resigned from his position, effective immediately. It’s noteworthy that despite his resignation, he will be entitled to his full pension, which is estimated to be close to $1 million over his lifetime, according to information obtained by Media Take Out.

The case has raised discussions about accountability, appropriate consequences, and the broader implications for those in positions of power who engage in such misconduct. The guilty plea represents a measure of justice for Judge Hatchett, who has been a vocal advocate for the truth to prevail throughout this ordeal.
