Ex-mayor pleads guilty on 91 counts, gets 5 years probation

A former longtime Douglasville mayor was sentenced Monday to five years probation and ordered to pay more than $24,000 in restitution Monday after his guilty plea on 91 theft charges.

Claud Mitchell “Mickey” Thompson must also not seek or hold public office again in return for being granted first offender status, according to his sentencing document, obtained from the Superior Court of Douglas County clerk’s office.

Thompson pleaded guilty to fraudulently submitting requests to be paid for attending meetings that weren’t city-sanctioned meetings. He was indicted in September.

After serving four years as a city councilman and 12 years as mayor, Thompson left office in December 2011.

As part of his sentencing, Thompson was ordered to pay $28,483 to the city and cooperate in the ongoing investigation into the thefts, documents state.
