Guilty Plea in Labor Commission Extortion Case

Ollie Davidson pled guilty to two federal misdemeanor counts of extorting money from employees for the reelection campaign of State Labor Commissioner Sam Caldwell. Davidson, a manager in the department’s Tifton office, had plea bargained; in exchange for her plea she would not be prosecuted further and agreed to testify for the government in future trials involving this case. Caldwell eventually was convicted and forced to resign.
