Couple protests outside courthouse

The Montgomery Advertiser

PRATTVILLE -- An Autauga County couple facing drug charges protested in front of the courthouse Monday afternoon, saying the Sheriff's Department is corrupt.

Greg Davis, 39, and Brenda Tucker Davis, 43, both of 1713 County Road 40, each face a possession of marijuana charge, according to courthouse records. They stood at the corner of Court and Fourth streets displaying three posterboard signs.

Davis admits deputies found a small amount of marijuana in the home but said the sheriff's department kicked in three doors when they served the search warrant Dec. 9. He called the action "a violation of our rights."

Autauga County Sheriff Herbie Johnson says the protest won't change the way he handles future cases.
