DeKalb Co. cop charged with sodomy


A DeKalb County policeman finds himself on the opposite side of the law following his arrest on sex charges.

Bettina Durant, a police spokeswoman, said the charges stem from a complaint filed in January that alleged 29-year-old Javier Alfredo Garces made inappropriate contact while he was on duty.

Durant said Garces was charged Monday with two counts of sodomy and placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation.

Its unclear if he has retained an attorney.
