• Deputy gets probation for bathroom recording


    CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga.,None - A Clayton County deputy will spend three years on probation for making an audio recording of a colleague using the bathroom.

    After pleading guilty to eavesdropping, 33-year-old Alicia Parkes was sentenced to three years of probation and a $300 fine. Prosecutors said she was on duty in September 2010 when she used a cellphone to record the Sheriff’s Office employee using a jailhouse bathroom. Parkes must also apologize to the victim.

    She previously also faced a felony obstruction charge, but it has been dropped. Parkes was accused of trying to stop a police officer from arresting one of her relatives. She was a Clayton County police officer at the time.

    Parkes’ attorney said her record will be wiped clean once she successfully completes probation.
