Milledgeville dentist accused of defrauding mother


A Milledgeville dentist was arrested Monday charged with felony theft by deception.

The victim is his mother, according to a news release from the Milledgeville Police Department.

Dr. Roy Lehrman was arrested at his home following what authorities said was an investigation of several months.

Lehrman had power of attorney over his mother and her finances, the release states. There were questions about how more than a half million dollars was being handled. Investigators learned Lehrman's mother was in the process of being evicted from the Savannah retirement home where she lived. Investigators said the rent hadn't been paid in months.

"Basic needs" of the victim also were not being cared for, the news release states.

Lehrman's mother was sent to Indiana where she could be cared for by other family members, the news release states.

GMC VP retires from active duty


Character Above All.

They're the three simple words that guide the students of Georgia Military College and how Brigadier General Curt A. Rauhut's colleagues summed up more than three decades of service.

"Curt's character is evidenced in his distinguished career as a soldier. Selfless service defines who he is," Lieutenant General William B. Caldwell IV, Georgia Military College's President, said during a retirement ceremony Friday.

Friday, Georgia Military College's Vice President, who came to the college in July, officially closed that chapter by retiring from active duty.

"I have been extremely blessed having the opportunity to serve soldiers, civilians and family members for 30 years. We retire with great friends, fond memories and the eagerness to serve in a different capacity now."
