Anderson still in command in Baker

March 28, 2006

Newton -- A South Georgia sheriff remains on the job while his appeal to retain his certification is on hold.

Baker County Sheriff Isaac Anderson appealed in December 2004 to retain his Peace Officer certification.

At that time, Anderson explained his actions in 2003 when he was accused of falsifying an incident report. A jury acquitted him of that charge.

At the 2004 hearing, the Attorney General's office asked for a trial transcript and delayed the hearing. A spokesman for the Attorney General's office said Tuesday that no date for the hearing has been set, and he doesn't expect one to occur for at least a month or so.

The POST Council recommended revoking Anderson's certification.
