Head of Georgia Sheriffs Association asks Gov. Deal to suspend Victor Hill

From Fox5 Atlanta:

The president of the Georgia Sheriffs’ Association would like to see sheriff-elect Victor Hill step aside until his legal issues are resolved.

GSA President Howard Sills says the Victor Hill situation quickly took center stage at their meeting last week in Savannah. The organization believes that Hill cannot be effective as sheriff as long as he is plagued by legal troubles.

The association is asking the governor to appoint a three-person panel to assess the charges and suspend Hill until his legal matters are resolved.

“Membership of the Georgia Sheriff’s Association are quite concerned with the entire matter. It would be very difficult to carry on in that position of leadership, I think, while you have been indicted for felonious crimes in the county where you are the chief law enforcement officer. Certainly it’s embarrassing. Mr. Hill has not been convicted. And we are acutely aware of that,” said Sills.
