Statenville-- The interim sheriff of Echols county will stay on the job.

In a special election, Echols County voters chose to keep Randy Courson as their sheriff.

He was appointed to the position after former sheriff Donald Fender was removed from office in March for stealing money.

"I just want to just continue to do my job and to serve the citizens of Echols County," said Sheriff-elect Courson.

Barry Sasser ran against Courson. He also served as a deputy under Fender, but lost his position after Courson took office.

Courson had 602 votes, and Sasser 199.
