Oral arguments in Hill case begin Tuesday at Court of Appeals

ATLANTA — Oral arguments in Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill's criminal case begin Tuesday at the Georgia Court of Appeals.

Hill was due to be tried on 32 felony counts last year but his attorneys and state prosecutors appealed, delaying the start of the trial up to a year.

Hill was indicted in January 2012 on charges mostly related to his first term in office, 2005-2008. While under indictment, Hill was re-elected and re-took the office in January.

He maintains his innocence and has vowed to be acquitted.

He faces years in prison if convicted on all charges and will be removed from office if convicted on just one felony.
