Slaughterhouse Owner will be Arraigned Nov. 5
The slaughterhouse case has been moved to state court. This is the case against Rudolph Bradford, the person running an illegal slaughterhouse in a residential neighborhood (1676 Rice Road). He has slaughtered more than 2,357 animals since January 2016, including at least 200 cows, sheep and goats since he was put under a cease-and-desist order. DeKalb County is citing him for operating a business without a license, a business NOT allowed in a residential zone.
The arraignment will be Nov. 5, 9 a.m., before Judge Wayne Purdom, DeKalb County State Court, Courtroom 3-B, 556 N. McDonough Street, 3rd Floor, Decatur, Georgia . The November 5th date is a State Court Arraignment date, so Mr. Bradford will be provided a motions or trial date by the State Court on that day if he doesn’t plead guilty.
The Solicitor’s Office made the request, and it was granted last month. Solicitor Thomas Kemp promises to continue to keep us informed.
If you can attend the arraignment, it would be helpful to have community representation. Please write GHHCDC@gmail.com if you plan to go. More than likely, Bradford will plead guilty, which means there will be a trial, and then we’ll really need to show up in force.
