Judge mum on sheriff appointment
Placeholder Image
Despite continued requests for comment from Liberty County Probate Judge Nancy K. Aspinwall, the judge remains mum on her recent appointment of Polly E. Martin as the new county sheriff.
Martin is former Liberty County Sheriff J. Don Martin’s widow. He died last Thursday and was interred Sunday in the Hinesville Cemetery.
Aspinwall made the appointment Tuesday.
Aspinwall followed the letter of the law regarding the appointment, as cited in Georgia Code 15-16-8, but will not answer questions about her decision or Polly Martin’s qualifications. For the complete story, pick up a copy of Friday's Coastal Courier.
