The informant wrote a letter to deputies demanding payment for his work, according to an internal investigation.
"Your dirty deputies gave me drugs (cocaine & weed) to give her. They set her up!!!!" wrote the unnamed informant, according to the CBS46 report.
David Boyle, the attorney who represents Jones,
says it seems like "they're planting evidence on somebody."
“What they did is find a confidential informant who they then gave drugs to, marijuana and cocaine, and they sent that person to go meet with Mrs. Jones and to give her the drugs,” Boyle said.
The TV station has reported
457 people were pulled over in Walton County for having tinted windows while officers in neighboring east Georgia counties pulled over less than 30.
Walton County Sheriff Joe Chapman says no laws were broken and the DA agrees.
Jones' attorney thinks otherwise.
"They are essentially manufacturing the crime in terms of providing the drugs and then arresting the person. In my mind, that seems completely illegal," Boyle said. "I've never seen a case in which the police are arresting somebody after giving them drugs. There is no sale of the drugs, there is no purchase of the drugs."
You might want to avoid Walton County, even though they do have a pretty cool
'American Sniper' corn maze.
