• Secret recordings, grand jury testimony to be used against Ellis

    Updated:

    DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. - A judge has moved the trial date for suspended DeKalb County CEO Burell Ellis.

    Ellis faces 14 felony charges, ranging from bribery to theft.

    His trial was originally scheduled for June, but has been moved to Sept. 8.

    There were also two victories for prosecutors in the case handed down Thursday.

    A judge will allow secret audio and video recordings of Ellis to be used against him and the judge will not throw out testimony Ellis made during a special grand jury investigation.

    Prosecutors say he perjured himself.
