About Us

Juvenile Court Association of Georgia (J.C.A.G.) is an independent organization created to provide a united forum for all independent Juvenile Courts located throughout the state of Georgia. Independent Courts work in conjunction with the Georgia Department of Juvenile Justice to provide services and probation supervision to our youth statewide. The Georgia Independent Juvenile Courts are Bibb, Carroll, Chatham, Clayton, Cobb, Columbia, Crawford, DeKalb, Dougherty, Floyd, Fulton, Glynn, Gordon, Gwinnett, Hall, Henry, Newton, Peach, Rockdale, Spalding, Troup, Upson, Walton, and Whitfield.

The Georgia Association of Independent Juvenile Courts was established November 1975. The first board meeting was called by Ed Crawford in Bibb County, Georgia. In 2004, the name was changed to Juvenile Court Association of Georgia.

Also, Earl was a little league coach to many youth in the community. He was member of Bethany Baptist Church and was a member of the choir where he blessed many with his Angelic voice.
