It happened in January 2011, and the suspect's mother filed a lawsuit against the sheriff's office.

Sen. Perdue answers student questions

Some Houston County students got some outside help for their unit on U.S. government, from one of Georgia's senators in Washington.

At the school that bears his father's name, Senator David Perdue spoke to their second graders about how things work in the nation's capital.

He sat in the auditorium answering all of the hard-hitting questions.

"How has your life changed now that you're a senator?" asks one student, peeking from under her hat.

It might not have been as intense as the Senate floor, but the questions from 180 second-grade students at David A. Perdue primary ranged from term limits, to how he can help make jobs.

"There's something called the economy," explains Perdue. "The economy is where we create jobs."
