The Georgia Attorney General has now filed criminal misdemeanor charges against the former spokesperson for Mayor Kasim Reed.

Attorney General Chris Carr said Jenna Garland faces two charges of violating the Open Records Act.

Under the law, the majority of government records belong to the citizens who can request to view them at any time.

Garland is accused of intentionally making it difficult for a TV station to get access to the city of Atlanta records.

Attorney General Carr hopes other government officials are watching the case.

Garland's attorney has denied any wrongdoing.
