Sheriff may be suspended by the State

July 18, 2003

Newton-- A panel consisting of Georgia Attorney General Thurbert Baker, Thomas County Sheriff Carlton Powell, and Chatham County Sheriff Al Saint Lawrence recommends suspension for the Baker County Sheriff.

Sheriff Isaac Anderson was indicted by a federal grand jury in May for hindering an investigation and lying to federal agents.

He's accused of fabricating an accident report to provide an alibi for Tommy Williams, Junior of Albany, who is charged in Florida with domestic abuse.

Governor Perdue is expected to review the recommendation soon.
