Ethics hearing delayed

No reschedule date set to hear ethics complaint against Joiner

MILLEDGEVILLE —

The first hearing on an ethics complaint filed against Milledgeville City Councilman Phillip Joiner, District 4, has been delayed.

After nearly 30 days of collecting evidence, the City of Milledgeville’s ethics board was set to hold its initial hearing Tuesday on the pending ethics complaint filed by Danielle Fields, downtown business owner, against Joiner. 

City attorney Jimmy Jordan received a letter Friday afternoon from Joiner’s attorney, Donald Oulsnam of Frier & Oulsnam in Milledgeville, requesting a two- to four-week continuance due to Joiner suffering from a fall.

The ethics board plans to convene to discuss matters and officially set the hearing date.

“Unfortunately, Mr. Joiner spent much of [Thursday] night and early [Friday] morning in the hospital after suffering a fall resulting in a separated shoulder and ligament damage. As a result, Mr. Joiner is on bed rest, heavily medicated and cannot drive or otherwise assist in the preparation for the currently scheduled Board of Ethics hearing,” Oulsnam’s letter to Jordan states.
