Albany - The Sheriff's lawsuit against Dougherty County may not be filed before 6 sheriff employees are forced to leave. Sheriff Jamil Saba is suing the county after commissioners eliminated the sheriff's department patrol unit, the criminal investigators, and the crime scene technician. August 1st is the last day for the 6 employees, but Saba says they're not going anywhere until this lawsuit is settled.

"I hope to file the suit in the next fews weeks," said Sheriff Saba. "Until the outcome of the suit comes, my investigators will continue working to protect our community."

The Sheriff hired Savannah attorney, Steven Scheer, to handle the case. He's won a similar case in Savannah. Saba hopes the suit will be filed by August 1st. The county will save $300,000 a year by eliminating the positions.
