District Attorney Capped

“Olivia Pearson knows what it’s like to be caught up in the criminal justice system in southern Georgia. In 2016, a local district attorney’s office indicted Pearson, a Black grandmother and civil rights activist, on felony voter fraud charges and threatened her with years in prison after she helped a first-time voter who didn’t know how to use an electronic voting machine.” That district attorney is George E. Barnhill. If you’ve been paying close attention to the news, you might recognize the name. He Didn’t File Charges in the Ahmaud Arbery Case. But He Spent Years Accusing a Black Grandma of Voter Fraud.
