Three former Bibb deputies plead guilty

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Three former Bibb County deputies pleaded inside a federal courtroom Friday morning. 

DeCarlo Lattimore, Jimmy Denson, and Arthur Howard all submitted plea deals to a judge. According to court documents, the men are facing felony theft charges stemming from their plan to rip-off drug dealers and pocket the drug money.

In exchange for the guilty plea, the three would have a reduced charge from a felony to a misdemeanor and would face three years probation and several fines. 

Also as part of the deals, they would have to give up their careers in law enforcement. U.S. attorney Michael Moore tells 41NBC it’s up to a judge to accept the plea agreement, but his main priority was to make sure the former deputies never put on a badge again. 

A fourth deputy, Jermaine Hill, was also arrested and pleaded guilty, but has yet to be sentenced. 

A judge is scheduled to make a decision on the deal on May 21st.
