ATLANTA (AP) - A federal trustee has ordered former Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill to turn over $25,000 he had kept in a day-trading account to U.S. Bankruptcy Court.
Federal trustee Tamara Miles Ogier ordered Hill on Wednesday to turn over the money, which he failed to report on a bankruptcy filing. The money will be given to creditors.
In October, a federal judge ordered Hill to pay Mark Tuggle, brother of a former Clayton sheriff, $475,000 after a jury found Hill guilty of false arrest. Hill has five other pending lawsuits against him.
Hill filed for bankruptcy Dec. 30, two days before his term as sheriff expired, saying he could not afford to pay $1.7 million in amages for several lawsuits.
Hill told Ogier he is unemployed and can't sell his Riverdale home and owes more than it is worth.
