Court system changes mean faster pleas for immigration detainees

On a Friday morning in the Hall County jail, two dozen jumpsuit-clad inmates lined up in handcuffs and leg irons to plead guilty to the misdemeanor crimes that landed them there.

After being led by deputies into a plain cinder block room converted into a courtroom with a pair of flags and a judge's desk at one end, the inmates quietly sat in rows of metal and plastic chairs. They waited to enter their pleas before Hall County Senior State Court Judge Charles Wynne, many with the aid of a Spanish-language interpreter.
