My husband has been charged with GA 16-5-23(a)(1) - SIMPLE BATTERY - INSULT/PROVOKE in Cobb County, GA. He was at work and came up behind a young girl and goosed her saying "It's too quiet in here". She was eating/reading and did not seem concerned at all. About an hour later, my husband was called to the store managers office; the leader on duty was there as well as a Cobb County Sheriff. Apparently, this young girl had gone to the leader on duty crying and hysterical regarding "the incident". He of course, called the store manager. The sheriff told my husband that he could be arrested then and there but he would leave it in the employers hands. My husband was then told by the manager that he was being suspended without pay until further notice and she would call and let him know what "corporate HR" had decided. A day or so later, the young girl told the manager that she would not file any charges (I realize it is her right to do so even if she states she won't). Four days later, my husbnd got the call from the manager that he was terminated as of the date of the "incident". About 7 - 10 days later, he gets a "NOTICE OF HEARING" in the mail for 16-5-23(a)(1) - SIMPLE BATTERY - INSULT/PROVOKE. What are we to do now or does anyone have any words of wisdom?
