With a unanimous vote of 4-0, the Fort Oglethorpe city council voted late Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 27, to oust one of its own.
With the unexpected, sudden death of council member Eddie Stinnett on Wednesday morning, Nov. 28, this leaves the council with just three members. Stinnett suffered an apparent heart attack while driving in Fort Oglethorpe.
Following a lengthy public hearing on charges he had sexually harassed a city police detective, Charles Sharrock was removed from the body he had been elected to serve for a second term this past year.
Sharrock was found guilty of malfeasance in office and unbecoming conduct.
Afterwards, except to say that “we will appeal this decision to Catoosa County Superior Court,” Sharrock declined to answer questions.
