Douglas - Coffee County voters will elect a new sheriff in a special election July 18th.

Qualifying for the sheriff's race will begin April 24th, the same date as qualifying opens for the July 18th general primary.

Probate Judge Sylvia Stone said she won't appoint an interim sheriff until after April 15th, the date Sheriff Rob Smith's resignation is official.

Late last month, Smith pleaded guilty to one count of malpractice and malfeasance in office, handed in his resignation, and surrendered his law enforcement certification, all to avoid going to jail.

The remaining counts against Smith were dismissed.
