Hall corrections officer implicated in racketeering ring

POSTED: June 5, 2014 2:54 p.m.

A Hall County corrections officer has been arrested by the Banks County Sheriff’s Office for his alleged role in a multimillion-dollar racketeering ring.

Devin Cain Ledford, 37, of Commerce has been employed with Hall County since 2008, Sheriff’s Office spokeswoman Deputy Nicole Bailes said in a news release. Cain served as an officer in the road maintenance division.

Hall County Human Resources Director Bill Moats said Ledford has been placed on administrative leave.

“Hall County takes this matter very serious, and as soon as we became aware of the situation this morning, the decision was made to place Ledford on administrative leave, pending an internal affairs investigation initiated by Hall County Sheriff’s Office,” he said.

Per standard practice, Bailes said, the Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council has been informed of Ledford’s charges. The law enforcement certifying agency will conduct an independent investigation.

Bailes said the Sheriff’s Office will not be releasing any more information at this time as the internal investigation continues.
