Former sheriff’s spokesperson jailed on bench warrant

A former Clayton County sheriff's spokeswoman was jailed Tuesday night on a bench warrant for failure to appear in Superior Court, on Tuesday.

Alicia Nicole Parkes, 33, of McDonough, was booked into the Clayton County Jail at about 5:30 p.m., according to booking records. She had been out on bond on charges of unlawful eavesdropping and obstruction of an officer.

According to Superior Court records, Parkes was due in Chief Judge Deborah Benefield's courtroom Tuesday morning. Her case was listed on Benefield's trial calendar.

Parkes is accused of using her cell phone to record a co-worker using the bathroom. The indictment returned against her last year states the dates of the allegations to be between June 1 and July 1, 2010, "with the exceptions of June 4-6, 11-13, 18-20 and 25-27," the exact date being unknown.

Atlanta attorney Jackie Patterson represents Parkes, but could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday night.
