DOUGLAS COUNTY, Ga.,None - A Douglas County jailer is accused of smuggling drugs and tobacco for inmates. He faced a judge Wednesday over felony charges.
Channel 2’s Amanda Cook went to a Douglas County courthouse, where a judge demanded an explanation from Joshua Turner. He is charged with two felony contraband counts and a felony charge of violating his oath of office.
On Tuesday, Turner met with Channel 2’s Mark Winne to apologize saying, “I made a mistake, but I admit to what I have done, and I regret the decisions that I made that led to this incident.”
The Douglas County Sheriff’s Office began investigating Turner last week based on a tip. Sheriff Phil Miller said he was bringing in marijuana, ecstasy and tobacco. On Wednesday, when a judge asked Turner why he did it, he said, “I don't have no reason for doing it.”
Turner’s bond was set at $18,000.
“That's a high bond, but what you did is very serious," the judge said.
