DOUGLASVILLE, Ga. - Douglas County Probate Judge Christina Peterson must answer a second state complaint of wrongdoing.
She’s been in office less than a year.
This time Peterson faces allegations she put the public’s safety at risk for actions she took at the Douglas County Courthouse.
According to a complaint filed by the Judicial Qualifications Commission — the group that investigates judicial behavior in Georgia — Peterson violated security rules by letting civilians into the locked courthouse after hours.
