ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Baker County may know by the end of the week what will happen with the Sheriff's position following last week's Supreme Court decision.

The state's high court decided not to hear Sheriff Isaac Anderson's appeal to reverse the decision that revokes his law enforcement certification. Anderson has until Thursday to ask the court to reconsider it's decision, but that's not the only question that remains unanswered for Baker County.

"The election is another question, that's right, that also involves in Baker County the Probate Judge who also serves as the election superintendent. There will be a question whether Sheriff Anderson meets the qualifications to run for Sheriff," said Tommy Coleman, Baker County Attorney.

Until this week, Anderson was the only Sheriff's candidate who had qualified, but now independent candidate Dana Meade, an investigator with the Newton Police Department has also qualified. Anderson's attorney Phil Cannon could not be reached to comment on whether they will ask the court to reconsider their decision.
