As promised, we will start posting the names of convicted individuals in state illegal dumping/litter charges. Please keep in mind; this is our first posting for the June 2017 citations since they were just completed in the judicial system.
In June 2017, we had 88 state illegal dumping cases we worked. Of those cases, we had one conviction. The offender was Grayson Hamilton who was convicted of illegally dumping litter on Unicoi Dr. off of Colbert Road.
One important note, not all illegal dumpings will have a conviction. At times and depending on individual circumstances, our officers will determine a different route with an illegal dumping. We may require some kind of community service, essay writing for younger offenders, or cleanup of the site and other sites in lieu of a conviction. We also have many cases in which some of our older citizens were scammed and their litter was dumped while the true offender kept the money. The Marshal Bureau is very active in cleaning up Paulding County and while we want to punish the offenders, we also want to see a clean Paulding County. We will be posting monthly from this point forward of all state offenders who have been convicted. Please help us spread the word.
