Albany-- A Democratic candidate for Dougherty County Coroner says voters should not judge him on "past mistakes".

35-year-old Bobby Berry held a press conference defending what he calls a "smear campaign" against him.

Berry has a criminal past, including two misdemeanor convictions--one for petty theft in 1988 and another theft by taking charge in 1995.

But, Berry says he is qualified to hold the position. "We all make mistakes. When I was younger I made some mistakes. Like most people I learned from those mistakes. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone."

Berry says he has nothing to hide and will not be intimidated to get out of the race.

Berry is running against Emma Quimbley in the Democratic Primary July 20th.
