DEVELOPING: Former SCMPD Detective Indicted

Posted: Updated:
SAVANNAH, GA -

4 pages, 7 counts, all for making false statements.

Those are the charges Trina Mayes was indicted on by a Chatham County Grand Jury Wednesday.

This is just the latest part of this ongoing saga we started telling you about in November, but actually began much earlier.

In 2006 with a man named Rocky Sellers.

"You knew she was a police officer and she knew you were a felon? Yeah. That didn't matter to her? No. Did you ever talk about it? no"

That's what Rocky Sellers told News 3 back in November about his relationship with then Detective Trina Mayes.

Sellers, a convicted felon, says he had a relationship with Trina Mayes in 2006, while she was a police officer in Garden City and then Savannah.

Where the criminal charges come in - the grand jury saw documents I obtained that show Trina Mayes was not just involved with sellers, but took money from his jail account - and even signed a promissory note to help bail sellers out of jail.
 
 "Then I finished probation in Carolina," explained Sellers. "But I had to bail out. So Trina came and bonded me out."

The bond log from A Brighter day bonding company shows the name Trina Katrice McGee, Mayes maiden name, front and center. The document even names her employer, the Savannah Police Department.

Brighter Day workers told investigators Trina was there when those papers were signed and even gave them her driver's license.

Mayes allegedly lied about all those things to independent investigators. The evidence led the Grand Jury to indict Mayes.

Trina Mayes' criminal attorney, Richard Darden, gave us this statement this afternoon.

"These allegations were fully investigated in 2007 and there was no evidence of any wrongdoing on the part of my client.  We will vigorously defend this case before a jury of her peers and I am confident that they will agree that my client is innocent of these charges."

There is a new twist to this story. Another man named Anthony Jackson, who is currently in prison, but when he was wanted by the law - Mayes allegedly hid him in her apartment.

The Chatham County District Attorney's office says what they learned from Jackson led to one of the charges against Mayes.

Rocky Sellers told me a lot more about Anthony Jackson and Trina Mayes.

More of that exclusive interview Thursday on News 3 at 6.
