This investigation of two sheriffs in Georgia who used inmates housed in their jails for their own personal and private gain, essentially making slave laborers out of county prisoners, shocked many. Under Georgia law, it is a felony-violation of oath of office-punishable by up to five years in prison each time a sheriff uses inmate labor for personal gain. As a result to this investigation, one sheriff resigned after FBI opened investigations on him.
