The Telegraph of Macon reports that Jeffery M. Davis will remain the chief judge of the Magistrate Court of Monroe County. But he resigned his position as a Forsyth Municipal Court judge after his June 3 arrest.
Davis pleaded guilty on June 10 and was sentenced to about a year of probation, a day in jail, an $800 fine and 40 hours of community service.
He was stopped at a highway license checkpoint near Bibb County when he declined to take a sobriety test and was arrested. Officials say he reported himself to Georgia’s Judicial Qualifications Commission, which handles judicial misconduct complaints.
