Stokes was wanted on outstanding warrants for Felony Murder and Possession of a Gun by a Convicted Felon. <br />

As we honor our fallen service men and women, Commander of the Hall County Sheriff's Office Honor Guard, Jonathan Jackson, takes a moment to talk of the importance of Memorial Day and discuss what message we should take away as we remember our fallen heroes.
