[UPDATE] April 12, 2012 -

MEIGS, GA -- A former Meigs police officer will be going to jail after entering a plea in his case involving the statutory rape of a 13 year old girl.

Former Meigs police officer Brandon Lucky, indicted on statutory rape charges in two different counties, plead guilty Wednesday in Mitchell County.

"In my opinion I think it was an excessive sentence," said Meigs Police Chief Chris Luckey, Brandon's brother.

Brandon Luckey plead guilty April 11, 2012 to two counts of enticing a child in Mitchell County.

Luckey was a 23 year-old Meigs police officer when he was taken into custody by GBI in September 2011 for sexual activity with a 13 year-old girl.

"It's a serious offense, I'm not going to take that away from the crime itself, however, like I said, there's extenuating circumstances to every case," said Chief Luckey.

Chris Luckey said that the judge ignored the plea of 20 years with 8 served in prison for Brandon.

Chief Chris Luckey also wanted to make it clear that it did not matter whether it was his brother or John Doe, he thought the sentencing was excessive. Brandon Luckey still has pending charges in Thomas County.

    Everyone is entitled to their own opinions but unless you were there & saw everything with your OWN EYES then you don't have a clue of what REALLY happened! Granted he's 23 & she's 13 BUT I'm sure she knew what she was doing, all these KIDS are trying to be "grown" wayy before their time, both should be punished!! And all this judging & bashing the "luckey boys" isn't making anything any better! Look around those aren't the only ones that have done wrong in this world! But small minded people only want to talk trash & bash them.

    Dear Truthbetold, does a racist comment look and different from a black or white person??? You are embarrassing our race and not helping black/white relations!! Don't embarrass our ancestors this way, it's not what they would want. You know, our own ancestors in Africa were the original ones that sold us out, yet we blame the white man, we have got to improve.

    I can't believe his brother would comment on this. His brother deserves everything he gets. Thirteen is still a child. What a sick fool, both of them. I hope they do not have daughters. . Disgusting both of them.

    So the chief's brother who was a cop is sentenced to prison. If that's not bad enough, he's second guessing the judge. The bar for professional standards is pretty low in Meigs GA. You folks need a new chief.

        Cop, rape, 13-yo girl, cop's brother is the chief. He should be held to a higher standard. They should take the sentence of a regular joe and 2x it on a crooked cop.

          Luckey needs to go! He should be help to a higher standard. He has never been a supervisor, except in Meigs. Meigs needs someone that has a proven track record a good Christian Man. They had one that could have been Cheif and would have made a Great one. They laid him off. Of course they kept Chris Luckeys friend and made Chris Chief. Bahahaha I all I have to say.

      Chris Luckey should be held accountable. It happened in the same house he lived in with this brother...and a PARTY was going on. "Chief" Luckey should be charged with something. Contributing to a deliquent or a co conspirator. He has weaseled his weasle self into that Cheifs spot. The City council should fire Chief Luckey too!

    "Chris Luckey said that the judge ignored the plea of 20 years with 8 served in prison for Brandon." If he ignored the plea of 20 years with 8 served in prison, then what did he sentence him to?
