Sheriff places inmate with gum problems in cell with dentist

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. - A man accused of stealing a plane in Florida and flying it to metro Atlanta has a new cellmate after his parents complained their son has dental problems.

Gwinnett County Sheriff Butch Conway moved Daniel Andrew Wolcott Friday night to the cell with a Dacula dentist facing murder charges in the death of his wife.

Conway says he moved Wolcott to Bart Corbin's cell because Corbin is -- quote -- "trained in dentistry." He says if Wolcott has any complications, the two cellmates can advise the medical unit.

He noted that Wolcott just had his wisdom teeth out.

The 22-year-old Wolcott is awaiting trial on charges that he stole a seven (m) million dollar private jet in St. Augustine, Florida, in October and flew it to Briscoe Field in Lawrenceville. He has been in jail since then in lieu of $175,000 bond.

Wolcott's parents, Scott and Diane Wolcott, have been at odds with Conway since November over dental floss NOT being allowed in the jail. They say their son has developed gingivitis and gum pockets because he has been unable to floss.

The couple says putting their son in a cell with a dentist who canNOT practice his profession is NO solution.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution quotes Scott Wolcott as saying -- quote -- "This appears to be a very bad inside joke on someone's part."

Corbin is charged with murder in the death of his wife 33-year-old Jennifer Corbin, who was found dead of a gunshot wound to her head December fourth, 2004. He also is charged with murder in the death of a former girlfriend, 27-year-old Dolly Hearn.
