Albany-- Before indicted Albany commissioner Henry Mathis can be re-suspended from office, an investigative panel must hear his case, again. But the Governor's Office hasn't decide if that will happen.

After Mathis was initially indicted for extortion, a three person panel recommended he be suspended from the city commission, and the Governor agreed.

At the beginning of April, Mathis was re-instated to office after that trial was delayed. Now that he's facing more extortion charges, the suspension process would have to start all over.

Tuesday, the Governor's press secretary said the legal council is reviewing the situation to determine if another panel will hear the case.
