RINGGOLD, Georgia (WDEF) – The attorney for a former deputy blames “Murray County Sheriff politics” for his arrest.
Levi Amos was charged violation of oath by a public officer, electronically furnishing obscene material to minors and computer invasion of privacy.
GBI investigators say he accessed a state data base to get information on underage girls and then send them obscene pictures of himself.
But attorney McCracken Poston says Amos “has sound defenses to the charges as stated in the government’s press releases.”
“Things are not always as they first appear, especially in Murray County politics.”
