A former Habersham County Sheriff’s Office deputy has pleaded not guilty after she was indicted last week for allegedly giving false information to obtain a search warrant for a drug raid in which a toddler was severely injured. Nikki Autry, 29, of Clarkesville, pleaded not guilty Tuesday in federal court to the allegations of providing false evidence to a magistrate judge, which is considered a federal civil rights violation. A flash-bang grenade was tossed during the May 2014 raid, which caused significant injury to a then 18-month-old toddler, Bounkham “Bou Bou” Phonesavanh.
