Prosecution rests its case against Clayton Sheriff Victor Hill | www.ajc.com

On the fourth day of testimony, the prosecution rested its cast against Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill.

One of Hill’s four attorneys announced that they intended to put up a defense, which is not a requirement.

The first leg of the case ended with shouting and the judge hearing arguments at the bench, out earshot of spectators, the defense motion to declare a mistrial because of a comment Special Assistant Layla Zon made in reference to a former Sheriff’s Office employee who has not testified.

Judge Albert Collier said he chose to have the discussion out of ear shot because it involved a “private” matter.

The dispute between prosecuting and defense attorneys came when defense attorney Steven Frey was asking former Sheriff’s Office investigator Josh Waites about the reason a colleague, David Ward, left the Clayton County Police Department. Ward was a part-time investigator working with the Sheriff’s Office probe into Hill.
