Athens defense attorney Mo Wiltshire, who is representing many of the fraternity members, said an arraignment scheduled for last Thursday was postponed because prosecutors needed additional information before deciding whether to file formal accusations in court.
“I have been in discussions with the solicitor general, who wants to get all of the materials from university police, to let them complete their investigation so that he can review the information and made the appropriate decision,” the attorney said.
Wiltshire, who formerly served as solicitor general for Athens-Clarke County, has from the beginning called the arrests “unwarranted.”
He called the arrested frat members “good kids and students,” and noted that more than half of the Kappa Alpha Psi chapter’s members made the dean’s list last semester, and the chapter as a whole maintained the highest grade-point average of all UGA fraternities.
“When the facts fully come to light … it will become obvious that this case is the result of exaggerated and overblown accusations against fine young men,” Wiltshire said.
