Judge warns defendant’s father about ‘bad looks’

THOMASVILLE — Judge James E. “Jim” Hardy, who is presiding at a Thomas County Superior Court murder trial, told members of the audience Tuesday intimidation and influencing of witnesses would not be tolerated.

Hardy said it was believed Alvin Davis, father of defendant Alvin Davis III, was a security threat.

The judge told the father there would be no “bad looks” or stares at witnesses and no trial-related statements made in restrooms.

Davis said he did not attend the first day of the trial Monday because he could not get a day off from his job in Albany at a lawn and garden business.

Hardy said if anyone interrupts the trial, “I’ll deal with it swiftly.”

The jury was not in the courtroom when the matter was addressed.
