City boss considers cop's demotion

Albany --  City Manager Al Lott has not made a final ruling on whether Police Lieutenant Hosea Miller will be demoted.

In August, Miller was given a notice of a 30 day suspension for sexual harassment and improper conduct with two female police recruits.

Miller accepted the suspension, but on the day he was to begin serving it, he was given a notice of intent to demote him. Miller is fighting that demotion.

A hearing was held before the city manager Thursday. Alfred Lott had ten days from the date of the hearing to make his decision, but late this afternoon, Lott told WALB that he's extended the procedure 30 days to give Miller's attorney an opportunity to question one of the female complainants.

At the end of the 30 days, Lott will make the decision whether or not to demote Miller.

Miller is a 20 year veteran of the Albany Police Department.
