THOMASVILLE, Ga. — Gregory Hobbs is set to be reinstated as mayor of Thomasville.

According to WALB, Thomasville officials said Monday that it is their “understanding that Mayor Hobbs was reinstated by virtue of the plea agreement reached Friday.”

He was set to go to trial for false report of a crime, three counts of violation of oath of public office, and two counts of making a false statement.

Hobbs reached a plea deal Friday a few days before he was set to go to trial. Hobbs pled no contest to two counts of false reporting of a crime.

Because of the plea agreement, Hobbs will only be sentenced for the two counts. The other four counts will be dismissed.

In April, Gov. Brian Kemp issued a suspension order to Hobbs.
