Burglary case moves after years
Dot Futch of Brunswick is glad the case against the man accused of burglarizing her home nearly four years ago is finally moving again, but she still questions why it has taken so long.

Sean M. Flanagan was arrested Dec. 10, 2008, for allegedly burglarizing Futch's home in Belle Point, along with others. Flanagan's case sat idle in the Brunswick Judicial Circuit District Attorney's Office until July 19, when he and a codefendant, Renee Hope Harris, were indicted on multiple burglary and theft charges by a Glynn County Grand Jury.

Futch said Wednesday she had been waiting years to hear something about the case.

"I received a call (from the district attorney's office). We have a meeting at the courthouse about the case," Futch said.

When previously inquiring about the case, Futch said a victim's assistance worker with the district attorney's office questioned whether Futch had filled out the proper paperwork.

"I filled out everything (former District Attorney) Stephen Kelley gave me. The woman checked again, and the whole packet was there. It had never been touched," Futch said.

District Attorney Jackie Johnson previously told The News the Flanagan case had been handled by an attorney who was no longer with the office and that the situation was atypical.

Flanagan and Harris together are charged with three counts of burglary, 11 counts of theft by receiving stolen property and two counts of theft by deception. Flanagan is additionally charged with 10 counts of burglary.
