Murder Rate Reaches All Time High In Clayton County. Attorney Alan Parker

With less than 72 hours remaining in 2021, the murder rate is now 46% higher than it was last year.  This is the highest recorded murder rate in the history of Clayton County.  

It must be noted that prior to the suspension of Sheriff Victor Hill on June 2, 2021, the murder rate was down 24% which means there has been a 70% jump during the time of his absence this year.  Aggravated Assaults are now up 81%.  It should also be noted that assaults are also up in the county jail with inmates now embolden by the absence of the Sheriff.




After a lower court decision, Sheriff Hill’s suspension by the Governor is now being appealed to get him back to work. The Findling law firm who is representing Hill in the criminal case is ready to go to trial to get him acquitted and is actively seeking a court date.

Sheriff Victor Hill is notably the first and only law-enforcement official in the country criminally charged with using his discretion to restrain violent offenders.   Others throughout the nation (with the most notable being Gwinnett County) have restrained and assaulted prisoners while only facing civil lawsuits at best.  


As a result of this malicious and politically motivated prosecution of Sheriff Hill by the Clayton County DA’s Office and the DOJ,  it is has been observed that law-enforcement in Clayton County has been less pro-active about pursuing criminals fearing that they could be prosecuted for doing their jobs as well.  We look forward to a new year knowing that Sheriff Hill will be vindicated, and upon his return, will lead the charge in re-taking Clayton County back from the hands of violent criminals.
