Trial to start for ex-judge in framing of woman | www.ajc.com

Federal prosecutors have accused a former northwest Georgia judge of planting drugs on a woman’s car to discredit her after she accused him of propositioning her for sex. But Bryant Cochran’s lawyer said his client is eager to clear his name at a trial set to begin this week.

An indictment says the former Murray County chief magistrate judge also sexually assaulted a county employee, illegally searched the cell phone of another county employee and attempted to get a witness to provide false information to investigators.

Cochran’s attorney, Page Pate, said he and his client are looking forward to the trial, which is to start Tuesday in federal court in Rome.
