Clayton Chief Assistant District Attorney Erman Tanjuatco confirmed Tuesday that John Walker is facing a court hearing next week on a bribery charge.
Walker is accused of offering Clayton Chief Magistrate Judge Daphne Walker, no relation, campaign contributions in exchange for awarding a county contract to a probation company John Walker works for as legal liaison. He was indicted Oct. 20.
The probation contract was for Magistrate Court and State Court offenders.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that a telephone call to Walker's home was answered by his wife, who said he did not want to comment.
