Lakeland - We have new information on a story we first told you about Thursday.
A man who was indicted Thursday will still be allowed to run for sheriff in Lanier County. But the Georgia Sheriff's Association says there could be a problem if he's elected.
Darrell Watson was indicted for obstruction of justice and perjury. His attorney, Converse Bright says Watson is not guilty on all charges and will continue his campaign for Sheriff.
The state election board says there is no law that prevents his candidacy.
If he were elected, however, the Sheriff's association believes Watson would have to go through the same procedure as any indicted Sheriff.
The state requires that a panel reviews the charges and determines whether or not an indicted Sheriff can stay in office.
