Camilla-- Mitchell County's sheriff says he did not violate campaign ethics rules last year.

A state panel is investigating Sheriff W. E. Bozeman for using county property to campaign.

A complaint filed by Lisa Forrester accuses Bozeman of using a sheriff's car to attend campaign functions and distribute material. It also says he displayed campaign stickers in the sheriff's office.

Bozeman says the allegations aren't true, and that some employees put stickers on their personal equipment themselves.

"I went and had all the employees take any kind of campaign deal, anything that was visible, and I had them do away with it. To my knowledge, I don't know of any laws I broke."

Forrester is the mother-in-law of the man Bozeman defeated, Camilla PD's Chief Investigator, Vernon Nobles. The state panel is expected to make its ruling Friday.
