Georgia High School Students Win $3 Million Settlement Against Sheriff

A group of Georgia high school students have reached a $3 million settlement against the Worth County Sheriff's Office after a judge ruled that law enforcement violated their civil rights by conducting a massive drug search without probable cause.

A judge ordered former Worth County Sheriff Jeff Hobby and his deputies to pay the staggering settlement to the students.

In April, Hobbs and his deputies spent hours at Worth County High School searching more than 800 students for drugs — and their search turned up empty.

Attorneys from the Southern Center for Human Rights and the Atlanta-based civil rights firm Horsley Begnaud filed a class-action lawsuit against the sheriff's department on behalf of the students.

According to the suit, deputies "touched and manipulated students' breasts and genitals" and "inserted fingers inside girls' bras." The suit also alleged that the searches revealed the students’ body parts.

Mark Begnaud, who represented the students in the lawsuit, said Hobbs executed the search based on scant evidence and in clear violation of the students' constitutional rights.

“We hope this settlement sends a message to law enforcement beyond just south Georgia — or beyond Georgia — that this abuse of power is just not tolerated,” Begnaud said. "Students don’t shed their constitutional rights when they enter a school."

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed an executive order Monday suspending Hobby and appointing a retired deputy sheriff, Bobby Sapp, to serve as interim head of the department.

According to NBC-affiliate WALB, the settlement will now go to U.S. District Judge Leslie Abrams for approval.

If they expect citizens to follow laws and rules they have to do the same. Too bad though tax payers have to pay for their stupidity.

These assholes swore to protect and uphold the U.S. Constitution, but they hold in contempt nonetheless.

sadly, it will come directly from the police departments, who will pass it on to the taxpayers. i mean, they could likely sell off some of their heavy equipment (as most small departments in the US have a decent amount of SWAT equipment that is unneeded 'toys' for the department) but....nope.

Of course it won't be coming out of the cops pockets, aren't you being a touch naive, who do you think funds the cops?
