Indictment puts Sheriff Hill's certification at issue

Grand jury listens, then indicts Sheriff Victor Hill

LAWRENCEVILLE, Ga. -- A Gwinnett County grand jury indicted Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill Thursday on a misdemeanor charge of reckless conduct. A conviction on the charge could send Hill to prison for a year, and end his career in law enforcement.

The grand jury returned the indictment moments after Hill made a rare in-person appearance before grand jurors. District Attorney Danny Porter says Hill never denied shooting his friend Gwenevere McCord in May at her workplace in Gwinnett County. But he re-enacted the shooting, described by Hill and McCord as an accident, in an apparent effort to sway the grand jury to decline to indict him.
