  • She faces charges of violating her oath of office and obstructing police work after allegedly discouraging officers from making arrests










The ex-prosecutor in the Ahmaud Arbery case was admitted to a Georgia jail on Wednesday, the same day his three assailants were convicted of murder.

Jackie Johnson, 49, a former prosecutor for the Brunswick Judicial Circuit, was placed in Glynn County jail after turning herself in, authorities reported.

She was accused of discouraging police from making arrests in connection with Arbery’s death and turned herself in on Wednesday.

She was released the same day and reportedly failed to pay bail, the Associated Press reported.

She was indicted by a grand jury last week and charged with felony charges for violating her oath of office and a felony for obstructing police work, the Washington Examiner reported.

Johnson denied any wrongdoing, saying she withdrew her office from the case because one of Arbery’s attackers, Greg McMichael, had been an employee.

McMichael and two others were convicted yesterday of Arbery’s murder.
