Updated:MURRAY COUNTY, Ga. —
A former Georgia judge is now facing federal charges including witness tampering and sexual assault.
Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne broke the story on Twitter Wednesday morning.
Prosecutors say in 2012 Murray County Chief Magistrate Judge Bryant Cochran orchestrated a plot to plant drugs in the car of Angie Garmley.
They say it was payback because Garmley accused him of sexual harassment.
Three other men including a Murray County deputy pleaded guilty to charges connected to the incident.
Cochran is scheduled for a court appearance Thursday.
His attorney says he will plead not guilty.
