Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill has found himself at the center of yet another scandal, this time stemming from the Sunday night shooting of a female real estate agent working inside a model home in Lawrenceville, (that’s in Gwinnett County, not Clayton, for those keeping score at home). The woman, 43 year old Gwenevere McCord, a known ‘acquaintance’ of Hill, was shot once in the abdomen by the Clayton Sheriff and remains hospitalized in critical condition.
The Sheriff was released from the scene of the crime without being charged due to a Georgia law that states that regular police officers are unable to arrest a sitting Sheriff. Hill could still be charged, but according to Gwinnett police Sgt. Brian Doan, “there are things that have to be done before you, (a sitting Sheriff) can be charged with a crime.”
