Burglar bites PTC woman

A lesson for everyone: if you catch a burglar in your home, beware. He may bite.

A Peachtree City woman found that out yesterday after she found a juvenile standing in her living room, police said.

After police were summoned to the Laurel Court residence, the victim tried to hold the suspect down, but he bit her twice on the hand and fled the scene.

That set off a manhunt with K-9 units and the helicopter from the Fayette County Sheriff’s Department. Later the suspect turned himself in, police said.

The suspect was charged with burglary, battery and being an ungovernable child. He was scheduled to appear today in Fayette County Juvenile Court.

Laurel Court is off Hippocket Road, just north of Kelly Drive in central Peachtree City.

The old judges had a rule around here about mandatory jail time for any burglar who entered a home, school or church.

Somehow the bedwetters have forgotten that.

Ballard---- you are a prosecutor not a pastor. If you want a prayer group, that is honorable. But you are a prosecutor and your job is to put people in prison.

Try this kid as an adult and don't give him the Jimmy Carter get out jail card.

ilockemup, what gives?

Bedwetters reference? Check

Blind attack on liberal who has NOTHING to do with this case? Check

No cogent purpose for your post? Check.

I, personally, wish this woman had been with fire arm in hand, but that is another story. What amazes me is republicans in the middle of republica griping about THEIR people! Your own folks. Republicans that you try to blame on us democrats when they don't step as you tell them to. Time to go back to worrying about district voting or Coweta County or other crucial matters.

While you're very passionate about this matter, I have to ask one minor question of major importance:

Do you know how old this juvenile actually is? Or are you just ranting and raving without a rather necessary fact?

Under current Georgia law, youth ages 13 to 17 may be tried as adults for allegedly committing one of seven crimes (the so-called "seven deadly sins").

These crimes are:

    armed robbery (with a firearm)
    aggravated child molestation
    aggravated sodomy
    aggravated sexual battery
    voluntary manslaughter

I urge you to disregard these judicial wannabees and charge the punk as a juvenile.
