Haralson County District Attorney Bobby Brooks is holding a special session of the grand jury in order to keep Thomas Andrew Woods of Austell in jail, where he remains.
Woods was caught on camera grabbing a 7-year-old girl and allegedly trying to kidnap her from a west Georgia Walmart. Store cameras show the girl kicking and screaming before Woods put her down.
Under Georgia law, if a case has not been indicted within 90 days, a person who has been incarcerated without bond becomes eligible for bond.
To make sure that doesn’t happen, Brooks plans to hold a special session of the grand jury to seek indictments next Friday. The grand jury was not scheduled to meet before the 90-day period ended, however, the AJC reported.
