Brunswick Commissioner turns himself in to authorities
WOODBINE Ga. -- Accused of interfering with the investigation of 13-month old baby Antonio Santiago's shooting death, Brunswick City Commissioner James Brooks turned himself in this morning as he faces more charges.
According to the indictment, the new charges say that Brooks used his political influence to make a little side cash. He is facing racketeering charges in Camden County.
Neighbors tell Action News they are disgusted.
"It's just shameful another mark on our city that we don't need," said Brunswick neighbor, Sara Green.
The indictment also claims that Brooks took money from at least two other men in exchange for helping them get liquor licenses and other city permits.
