CLAYTON COUNTY, Ga. -- Victor Hill is poised to win the sheriff's election in Clayton County despite a felony indictment.
But the charges could ultimately lead to him being suspended or tossed from office.
Hill lost his bid to be re-elected as Clayton County's sheriff in 2008. But he ran again and defeated incumbent Kem Kimbrough in a runoff in August. Now he's the only candidate on the ballot. And his only opposition is the current chief deputy, Garland Watkins, who has mounted an aggressive write-in campaign.
