Former Sheriff Victor Hill Elected To Another Term

ATLANTA (WAOK)-Former Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill awoke this morning with an opportunity to be sheriff once again. Hill won Tuesday’s runoff election beating current Sheriff Kem Kimbrough by almost  two thousand votes.  The Clayton County Board of Elections reported Victor Hill with 12927 votes while Kimbrough finished with 11155 votes.

Hill still faces a 37 count indictment that he says was politically motivated by Kimbrough. Hill talked about the win and more this morning on Powertalk with Lorraine Jacques White on News and Talk 1380 WAOK.

Sheriff elect Hill participated in a free for all debate with Sheriff Kimbrough on WAOK and V-103 Monday morning. Hill said the debate gave him an opportunity to address many of his legal issues publicly for the first time.

Hill said his attorneys are working to dismiss a 37 count indictment brought against him for misappropriating funds during his last term and the reinstatement of his security certificate. The sheriff elect said  he is anxious to get back to protecting the people of Clayton County full time.
