Tifton -- A hearing to decide if a South Georgia sheriff can remain in office is scheduled next month.
Baker County Sheriff Isaac Anderson lost his law enforcement certification in 2004 but appealed that ruling. A hearing is set for January 4th in Tift Superior Court to decide his fate.
The state's Peace Officer Standards and Training Council pulled Anderson's certification after federal prosecutors accused him of helping a criminal suspect create a false alibi.
Anderson was acquitted of the criminal charges in a federal trial.
