Atlanta/Fulton County Sheriff's Deputy Sentenced to Ten Years

A deputy sheriff with the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office in Atlanta was sentenced in federal court today to serve 10 years in federal prison. Brian Anthony pleaded guilty earlier this year, according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, to multiple counts in a superseding indictment. According to the plea agreement, Anthony entered into a binding plea requiring him to serve 10 years in prison. U.S. District Court Judge Steve Jones accepted the plea in court today and ordered Anthony to serve 10 years for attempting to smuggle marijuana, cell phones and cigarettes into the Fulton County Jail. Anthony also accepted $25,000 cash from an undercover officer to provide protection for cocaine deliveries in the Atlanta area.

Anthony is the fourth defendant to be convicted in an undercover FBI investigation into corruption into the Fulton County Jail. Anthony is cooperating with the FBI according to his plea agreement.
