Abreu ordered to wear ankle monitor

Former Barnesville municipal judge Henry Abreu was ordered by Judge Tommy Wilson to wear an ankle monitor at a probation revocation hearing in Lamar County superior court this morning. Judge Wilson did not revoke Abreu’s probation. Abreu is serving probated sentences on two counts of furnishing alcohol to a minor, permitting an unlicensed person to drive and violation of oath of office by a public officer. Those charges arose out of a sting operation while he still served in the judgeship in 2004. Abreu subsequently was charged with DUI after a serious traffic accident. He was arrested again on December 30, 2008 on charges of solicitation of sodomy and stalking. Those charges are still pending and led his probation officer seeking to revoke him today. Abreu left today’s hearing in handcuffs in custody of the sheriff until he can be fitted with the monitor. Judge Wilson ordered him to have no contact with his alleged and/or former victims. He can leave his Locust Grove home only to go to work at his job in Butts County. For more on this story, see the 5.19.09 print edition of The Herald-Gazette.
