From WSB Channel 2 News:
A new indictment could put former DeKalb County
Channel 2 investigative reporter Mark Winne found out Lewis just got a ruling back from the Georgia Court of Appeals that reversed a lower-court decision disqualifying lawyer Mike Brown from representing Lewis in his corruption case.
But now the issue is will Brown be helping Lewis fight new allegations too?
Winne spoke by phone with Tony Axam, attorney for Pat Reid, former
Axam said the DeKalb district attorney's office has told him it intends to seek a superseding, or second, indictment in the DeKalb Schools case in which Lewis would become the central figure.
He said in the current indictment, Pat Reid is the central figure.
Axam maintains Lewis made Reid the central figure in the months leading up to the indictment through statements Lewis made to the DA's office.
Winne talked to the district attorney Robert James and said it sounds like such a plan has not gotten the green light from him so far.
"I've not made a decision to seek a superseding indictment or any other indictment at this point. What I'm dealing with is what's in front of us which is the existing indictment," James said.
