ATLANTA (AP/WAOK) – The prosecution is expected to continue presenting its case against Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill Monday.

Hill was elected last year despite being under indictment on felony corruption charges. He wasn’t in office when he was indicted in February 2012, but the charges stem from his previous term as the county’s sheriff, from 2005 to 2008.

The indictment accuses Hill of using his office for personal gain, including using county vehicles and credit cards for vacations after he lost a bid for re-election in 2008. Defense attorneys maintain the accusations are attacks by political rivals.
