FORMER WALTON COUNTY commissioner Herman Walker was found guilty of three traffic charges in a day-long trial that took place on April 22. The charges stemmed from an accident that resulted in the death of 38-year-old Eric Buharp. The incident occurred on July 11, 2008. Judge David Green found Walker guilty of operating a vehicle with mis-adjusted brakes, resulting in an $86 fine, guilty of crossing the center-line, resulting in a $136 fine, and guilty of careless driving with a death, resulting in a $1,136 fine and six-month suspension of his driver’s license. Walker was also cited for an out-of-date inspection and driving an overloaded vehicle. Those charges will be heard later by officials with the Florida Department of Transportation.
