Albany--  Dougherty County can not cut $300,000 from the sheriff's budget.

Superior Court Judge Ronnie Joe Lane ruled that the county commission does not have the authority to cut the sheriff's budget.

The sheriff sued the county commission for cutting his budget by $300,000 and elminating six positions.

 The case was set to go to trial September 30th, but now that won't happen. In his order Tuesday afternoon, Judge Lane enjoined the commission from removing any money from the sheriff's proposed budget.

The ruling will re-instate six positions that the county sought to eliminate from the sheriff's department, the crime scene technician, the investigation and patrol units.

County Attorney Spencer Lee won't say if he plans to appeal.
