Georgia is considered to be the youngest member of the original English colonies and the biggest state located east of the Mississippi River. Its boundaries were even bigger when it was named in 1732, including much of the states of Mississippi and Alabama. Georgia had vast plantations compared to other southern states, which made its economy dependent on agricultural products and slavery. The infamous March to the Sea by General William Tecumseh Sherman of the Union Army in 1864 occurred in Georgia, after his invasion and capture of Atlanta with the further destruction that included Savannah. Georgia presents varied landscapes that give views of Okefenokee Swamp in the southern part, the Appalachian Mountains in the north, and Atlantic coast marshes in the southeastern portion.

There are 159 counties that divide the state of Georgia, with each having their own home rules to resolve their local problems. There has been an additional establishment of seven city-counties. The big number of counties in the state has led to a lot of constitutional amendments to try to curtail its numbers. There were 161 counties in Georgia, which were lowered to 159 in a constitutional ratification in 1932 that consolidated both Milton County and Campbell County into Fulton County. This was an attempt to help both counties survive when they became almost bankrupt during the Depression years.

There are seven classes or levels of courts that hold the judicial power in the state of Georgia. This was done through the most recent Constitution of Georgia, implemented in 1982. Under this constitution, two level appellate courts have been established: the Supreme Court and the Court of Appeals. The trial-level courts are divided into five parts: the magistrate, superior, probate, juvenile, and state courts. Local levels also have around 400 special or municipal courts. The superior court is the most familiar judicial court.

Offender Search Web Page

The purpose and specifics of the Offender Search Web Page in each state varies. Read the disclosures carefully. Updates to the database could be biweekly, monthly and daily depending on the states Corrections Department schedule. Some searches show offenders incarcerated in the entire prison system including county jails and some only state prisons. Sometimes historical offender data is available and sometimes only current inmate records are listed. Youth and adult offenders are sometimes located on separate search portals.
