Savannah > Feds Now want Portion of Lovett Pension

| April 5, 2015


SAVANNAH — Federal prosecutors have requested a US District Judge garnish the pension of convicted former Savannah-Chatham County Police Chief Willie Lovett to offset court costs and fines.

Lovett began serving his 7 1/2 year prison term earlier this year after a jury convicted him of extortion and illegal gambling.

Legally, the City of Savannah still owes Lovett his $130,000 a year pension which has angered many in Savannah.

Prosecutors want to garnish a portion of that salary to pay off the $50,000 in court costs and fines Lovett owes as part of his sentence.  Since Lovett has made no payments toward the fine as of now, they contend garnishment is necessary and appropriate.

Lovett left office in 2013, almost a year before his indictment.
