CHATHAM CO., GA (WTOC) -

Another round in the battle to be the next Chatham County Sheriff. Incumbent Al St Lawrence and challenger MacArthur Holmes filed suits and counter suits but on Friday, an Atlanta area judge tossed it all out of court and lifted the gag order. St Lawrence wasn't at the session and Holmes is now speaking out.

"I think that the credibility of the sheriff is now in question because you now have a leader, the chief law enforcement officer within this county, who has no regard for the law itself. I think it leads to his credibility and the respect that he has towards the citizens of Chatham County," said Holmes.
