7/10/2018 - Cody Scudder sentenced in Superior Court to 23 Years - Click here to print this information

Cody Scudder was sentenced on July 10, 2018 in the Decatur Superior Court to a sentence of 23 years.

Cody Scudder pleaded guilty in eight individual cases, the most serious of which was a Level 2 Felony Dealing in Methamphetamine with a firearm. Other charges included multiple incidents of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender, Battery resulting in moderate bodily injury, Theft, and Escape. Superior Court Judge Matthew Bailey presided and imposed the sentence agreed upon by the parties.

Many law enforcement officers were involved in holding Mr. Scudder accountable, including the Decatur County Sheriff's Department's Sex Offender management deputies and staff, and deputies and jail staff regarding the Battery charge in the jail. Further, GPD Chief Brendan Bridges, Detectives Mike McNealy and Mark Naylor and several officers helped to execute the search warrant that ultimately led to the Level 2 Felony dealing charge.

Said Decatur County Prosecutor Nate Harter, "Over the course of the past several years, Mr. Scudder has been spiraling toward the point in which the criminal justice system would have to intervene in his life, for his sake and the sake of the community. I am pleased that he has taken responsibility for his choices, and I hope he takes treatment in the Department of Corrections seriously. Sentences like 23 years should be a message to those who peddle in poison in Decatur County."
