Jackie Johnson was indicted more than two years ago for allegedly protecting Arbery's killers.

Happy New Year! Jackie Johnson, the ex-Georgia DA charged for meddling in the Ahmaud Arbery investigation, will finally be in court in 2023.

A court date has been set for the former district attorney accused of obstructing the Ahmaud Arbery murder case.

Arbery’s mother says this isn’t the end of the battle and the family will continue to fight for justice in the name of their son.

Before he finally recused himself from the case, Barnhill wrote a letter claiming the evidence supported the actions of the McMichaels.


Former Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney Jackie Johnson was indicted for her incestuous relationship with one of Ahmaud Arbery's accused killers who she refused to criminally charge for his killing.

After the recent indictments of two Georgia district attorneys, including one who worked on Ahmaud Arbery's case while concealing a conflict of interest, Waycross County District Attorney George Barnhill -- who justified Arbery's shooting -- could be next.

Beyond the verdict, the group has emphasized the need for transparent investigations of police misconduct and prosecutorial accountability for the first two prosecutors who obstructed justice. 

One of the multiple prosecutors who recused themselves from Ahmaud Arbery’s murder case over shady links to the accused killers got a new challenger in her bid for re-election in Brunswick, Georgia.
