Rudy Vaughn to be paroled Sept. 14

Barring public outcry, former Milner restaurateur and paving contractor Rudy Vaughn will be released from prison on parole September 14. Vaughn pleaded guilty to three counts of theft by receiving stolen property on April 19, 2007 and was sentenced to 10 years in prison. If released as scheduled, he will have served just under 25% of his sentence. As part of a plea deal, Vaughn also gave the county his restaurant, Rudy’s House of BBQ in Milner, and forfeited $100,000. Vaughn had a lengthy criminal history including weapons convictions and faced 23 counts of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon if his case had gone to trial. He gave up his firearms and those charges were dropped. Vaughn was implicated in a multi-state cargo theft ring but avoided trial on the vast majority of the charges filed against him. While on parole, Vaughn will live with his girlfriend Peggy Dorsett at 330 Old Alabama Road in Milner. Dorsett was a codefendant of Vaughn’s in the case but charges against her were dropped as part of the plea deal. Georgia’s State Board of Pardons and Paroles may be reached at 404.656.5651
