Dekalb County Georgia Prosecuters Uncover Traffic Ticket Fixing Scheme

DECATUR, Ga. – DeKalb County prosecutors say they have uncovered a sophisticated traffic ticket fixing scheme involving three former county employees who used a team of local workers to help attract business.

District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming said Thursday that the three former deputy clerks with the county’s recorder’s court face racketeering charges. Five others face charges of making false statements, bribery and other charges.

Fleming said the former deputy clerks would arrange to destroy or dismiss the ticket for a fee of 50 percent of the fine. She said the three also had associates, including two who worked at a local salon, who would help attract business. She said sometimes they were given a 25 percent finder’s fee.
