SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

A former Savannah-Chatham Metro Police detective appeared in court Thursday morning.

Former detective Trina Mayes was indicted a week ago by a Chatham County grand jury on seven counts of making a false statement. She was booked in the Chatham County jail on Friday under her maiden name Williams. 

The grand jury returned a true bill on the charges Mayes made false statements to investigators during the probe into allegations of corruption and misconduct within the department.

Chatham County District Attorney Meg Heap had filed a motion to move the case to the major crimes division, which would move it to a different judge. That motion was denied.  

The allegations surround Mayes' alleged involvement with convicted felon William Lamont "Rocky" Sellers, as well as making false statements to Chief Julie Tolbert and City Manager Stephanie Cutter in an appeal hearing to try to keep her job.

Mayes' bond was set at $6,500. Under the terms of her bond, she has to surrender any passport she may have. She cannot leave Georgia without petitioning the court in writing. She is to have no contact with William Rocky Sellers, Patricia Sellers, Sgt. Cleveland Lovett, Anthony Albert Jackson, employees of Brighter Day Bonding. Mayes cannot solicit or authorize extrajudicial comments about this case in any media form.  

There are plans to allow cameras in the courtroom during future court proceedings.

An arraignment is scheduled for 10:30 a.m. April 10.
