Man Pleads Guilty To Making False Report

A Geneva County man pled guilty to charges related to staging his own shooting.

Greg Hatcher of Hartford pled guilty to obstruction of a governmental operation and filing a false report to law enforcement.

For a six-month suspended jail sentence, Hatcher will reimburse the Geneva County Sheriff's Department $750,000 for its effort involved in the investigation. Hatcher must also pay court costs.

Authorities say Hatcher created the ploy last December in order to gain sympathy from family.

Geneva/Dale County District Attorney Kirk Adams considers the case closed.
