A Georgia jury has found a former aide to former Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed guilty of violating the state's open records laws.

The Fulton County jury on Thursday found Jenna Garland committed two misdemeanors by ordering a subordinate to delay release of public documents politically damaging to Reed and some members of the Atlanta City Council.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports jurors deliberated about an hour before rendering a verdict.
