Panola County judge removes embattled sheriff from office
Panola County — A special-appointed judge ruled Thursday that embattled Panola County Sheriff Ron Clinton will be suspended with pay.
During a hearing in Carthage, Judge Diane DeVasto ordered the county to continue paying Clinton, said defense attorney David Moore.
