A special prosecutor has dismissed all charges against a former DeKalb County judge four days after he procured the indictment from a Cobb County grand jury.

On Monday, Hart County District Attorney Parks White dismissed six felony charges and a misdemeanor count against former Superior Court Judge Cynthia Becker.

Becker also delivered a written apology for what White said in the dismissal were “erroneous statements that became the object of this legal investigation and prosecution.”
