Logan is engaged to General Sessions Judge Joyce Broffitt and records show he used her as a reference when he got his job in the Sheriff’s Department’s records and identification office. He is on paid leave from the department while the case is pending.

So the suspect is not only an employee of the Sheriff’s Department, he is also involved in a relationship with a sitting judge. No conflict of interest there. Thus, because of the ties all of the General Session judges recused themselves from the case.
Wayne Logan appeared in court yesterday for his first hearing on child rape charges, but all the General Sessions court judges in Shelby County recused themselves.
Logan’s attorney, Leslie Ballin, says the General Sessions judges agreed it would be inappropriate for them to hear the case because his fiancé is a sitting General Sessions Court judge. (WMC-TV)
