Former District Attorney Jackie Johnson has been indicted by a Glynn County grand during for her handling of the aftermath of Ahmaud Arbery murder.

Our office is committed to ensuring those who are entrusted to serve are carrying out their duties ethically and honestly,” Attorney General Chris Carr shared in a statement. “We thank the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and the Glynn County Grand Jury for their hard work. While an indictment was returned today, our file is not closed, and we will continue to investigate in order to pursue justice.

According to reports, Johnson told local officers not to arrest Travis McMichael — the one man who shot and killed Arbery. Furthermore, she is being charged with obstruction of a police officer which is a misdemeanor. Johnson has been indicted for allegedly violating her oath of office (a felony), “showing favor and affection to Greg McMichael, and is being charged in the case.

The indictment stated the former DA failed “to treat Ahmaud Arbery and his family fairly and with dignity.”

Back in May of 2020, Attorney General Chris Carr requested the Georgia Bureau of Investigation investigate the case for potential prosecutorial misconduct during Arbery’s death investigation.
