The GBI reports that on Feb. 22, 2021, the GBI Athens Office was contacted by the GBI Americus Office and notified that information had been discovered during a separate investigation indicating that the suspect had allegedly been having sexual contact with a juvenile in Athens-Clarke County.
“GBI Region 11 initiated an investigation into Lindsey’s conduct and developed probable cause to obtain warrants for Lindsey’s arrest.
