Gilmer County Sheriff’s Sgt. Greg McClure

ELLIJAY, Ga. – Sgt. Greg McClure, a Gilmer County deputy sheriff, was arrested on Friday, Jan. 5, 2018, by agents of the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) and Gilmer Sheriff’s deputies.

According to a public release by Gilmer County Sheriff Stacy Nicholson, the investigation and subsequent arrest stems from a report of rape forwarded to the sheriff on Dec. 27, 2017. Upon learning of the report, Nicholson contacted the GBI and requested that they conduct the investigation.

Sheriff Nicholson stated that the allegations against McClure are all “off duty” in nature, meaning McClure was not on duty at the time the alleged events occurred.

McClure was booked and processed at the Gilmer County Jail on Jan. 5, 2018, and then transferred to another jail to be housed. At this time, McClure is being held without bond. Charges are aggravated sodomy (two counts), aggravated assault, and interference with government property.

    We live in a REALLY messed up world. While I don’t condone judging someone before they have a trial, it speaks volumes considering the position he he held.

    Kudos to our Sheriff for NOT sweeping this under a rug.

    Why was he transferred out to another jail ?

      Because he works in that county. Being transferred keeps allegations of favoritism down. He could be treated differently than other inmates. Or considering he may have arrested many of other inmates. So for his safety they can transfer as well.

    Unbelievable… so much for “To serve and protect”
    What’s this world coming to?

    He still deserves due process of the law. One the trial is over, let meet out the respective judgement.

    It seems reasonable to expect that his cases would be reviewed to make sure there was no bias given toward accused offenders of similar crimes during 9-1-1 responses.
