ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Baker County's former sheriff tried to report back to work Friday despite being removed from the position. Now the county attorney is threatening to arrest the former sheriff if he does it again.
Issac Anderson unsuccessfully attempted to return to the sheriff's office Friday morning, but was turned away again. Anderson was removed from office after the state Supreme Court rejected his appeal against a decision made by the Georgia Court of Appeals.
The appeals decision revoked his Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training certification. Anderson's attorney said he is still legally the sheriff because he was never granted due process.
"The Probate Judge should have notified him that he had 10 days to make a decision. If he appealed the judges decision within 10 days then he would remain in office until further determination. The person who decides after the 10 days will either be a Superior Court Judge or a jury," said Anderson's attorney, Phil Cannon, P.C.
Baker's County Attorney Tommy Coleman said that he will take legal action against Anderson if he attempted to return to the sheriff's office Monday. Coleman told all of the deputies that they are to respond to Belinc and not Anderson.
Andy Belinc, the Baker County Coroner, was sworn into the sheriff's position until the probate judge appoints someone else.
