Monticello Judge Resigns After Complaint

A Monticello-based judge resigned last week after a state investigation into whether he used his post for his personal benefit.

Judge John Lee Parrott resigned effective Saturday, May 19, according to a letter posted by the Georgia Judicial Qualifications Commission.

The commission says he resigned before a formal hearing was scheduled in his case.

He was a judge in the Ocmulgee Judicial Circuit, which handles cases in Baldwin, Jones, Wilkinson, Hancock, Putnam and three other counties. Parrott's letter says he's served for 24 years.

The consent order between Parrott and the commission does not detail complaints against him, and a commission spokesperson said no further information was available.
