One way to try to be a saint

MACON, Ga. (AP) - September 21, 2010

He's filed court papers to legally change his name to Saint Jody Almighty Bedrock.

His life has been anything but saintly.

Heggs has convictions for drunken driving and pot possession.

He also faces an aggravated battery charge.

But Heggs tells a Macon, Georgia, court his new name is part of his rededication to God.

A local paper reports prosecutors oppose the name change request, because it might be an attempt to hide Heggs' criminal record.
