Green given three years probation in death of Heard Deputy

Charles Grady Green of Woodland, Alabama plead guilty on three of the four counts he was facing during Heard Superior Court proceedings today.

The charges stemmed from the death of Heard County Deputy Will Cammon in an automobile collision involving Green on March 3, 2011.

The accident occurred near Yates Road on Hwy 100 North towards Ephesus.

Green received a one year sentence to be served on probation for each of the three counts which included: second-degree vehicular homicide, following to closely, and failure to maintain lane.

The probation sentences will run consecutively meaning Green will face thirty-six months of probation.

On the fourth count of texting while driving a “nolle prosequi” was filed meaning the charge was not pursued by the prosecution.

Green will also be required to perform 80 hours of community service, attend a defensive driving class, and pay a $1000 fine.

The judge who presided over the case was Superior Court Judge Jack Kirby of the Coweta Judicial Circuit.

  1. Is it just me or does 3 years probation not fit the bill here?

    • How many people have to die because of texting while driving before something is actually done? 3 years probation? This cannot be serious…I am stunned……

    MR. GREEN,IN ADDITION TO YOUR COURT PUNISHMENT, SHOULDN’T YOU OFFER TO OFFICER CAMMON’S FAMILY A “TEN MINUTE PER MONTH FOR LIFE” UPKEEP and PRAYER FOR, TO, AND OF, OFFICER WILL CAMMON’S GRAVESITE? THE SMILE HE AND I SHARED A DAY BEFORE SHINES IN MY SOUL CONSTANTLY! red

  3. I guess if you want to get away with murder you don’t have to go to Florida after all (Casey Anthoney).Shame on you Heard County!!

  4. What did Heard county have to do with the sentence?

  5. The Heard County Sherriff’s Office arrested Green. A Heard County Grand Jury Indicted him. That is the extent of Heard County Citizens’ involvement. The District Attorney prosecuted him and he pled guilty without a jury trial. The Judge sentenced him according to sentencing guidelines established by Georgia’s General Assembly. Neither the Prosecutor nor the Judge is a Heard County Citizen so again I ask, “What did Heard county have to do with the sentence?”.

    I’ve heard of people using stolen gift card get harsher sentences for financial card fraud. One to two years felony probation with community service. And no lives are lost there. A life was lost in this and only three years probation and 80 hours community service. This makes no sense. The punishment doesn’t fit the situation.
