According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the city of Atlanta is expected to pay an Atlanta woman $20,000 after the woman was arrested by Atlanta police officer Brandy Dolson.

62-year-old Minnie Carey was arrested on disorderly conduct charges after the officer demanded that she and several friends, who were discussing an upcoming funeral, move from a sidewalk. When Ms. Carey asked the officer why, she was arrested.

The AJC reported that the officer "already had a troubled history with the Atlanta Police Department."

"Working with John was my first experience with the legal system. John explained everything thoroughly to me and helped me weigh the pros and cons of each potential decision. He was readily available whenever I had a question or a concern about my case. I would highly recommend John to anyone in need of legal representation. He is professional yet still very down to earth.”
