Kris Coody Wiki – Kris Coody Biography

Kris Coody, the now-former Bleckley County sheriff, pleaded guilty to sexual assault in Cobb County court on Monday, local CBS affiliate WMAZ reported.

He acknowledged that he groped, without consent, the chest of Glenda Hatchett, host of the television show “Judge Hatchett,” during a conversation in the hotel bar during the Georgia Sheriff’s Association winter conference. Coody was sentenced to 12 months probation, 40 hours of community service, a psychosexual evaluation and a $500 fine, the station reported. He is also required to complete a drug and alcohol course, which his lawyer has reportedly already taken. Coody resigned from his position, WMAZ reported, citing defense attorney Joel Pugh. According to an arrest warrant, the incident occurred on January 18, 2022, at the Renaissance Atlanta Waverly Hotel, where the law enforcement gathering was taking place. According to Atlanta ABC affiliate WSB, former DeKalb County Sheriff Thomas Brown witnessed the incident and physically intervened. He told the station that Hatchett was his guest at the conference and that Coody groped her as he introduced her to some sheriffs present.

Investigation Report

Brown reportedly said that he walked away from Coody and Hatchett as they talked, and saw the assault when he turned around. “As I turned to the left to refocus on the two of them, I saw his hand move down to her left breast,” Brown said, according to WSB. “I grabbed his arm, pulled it off his chest and basically said, ‘What do you (adjective) think you’re doing?’ And that’s basically where it ended.” Hatchett served as Chief Presiding Judge of the Fulton County Juvenile Court, making her the first African-American to serve as Chief Presiding Judge in the Georgia state court. She was the host of the syndicated TV show “Judge Hatchett” and, since 2016, she hosts “The Verdict with Judge Hatchet.” “Justice has been served today,” Hatchett said in an Instagram post on Monday. According to local news outlet Atlanta News First, Coody was arrested in February 2022 after returning home early from a previously planned church mission trip. He was reportedly taking the charges “very seriously” and said at the time that he “hopes to be able to personally express his regret for any wrongdoing at the appropriate opportunity.” Coody joined Bleckley County after being fired from the Georgia State Patrol in 2007, Atlanta News First said. He was reportedly fired after two allegations of “improper conduct,” including a “domestic dispute” between Coody and a friend that reportedly escalated into violence.
