Jailed sheriff allegedly admits crime
by UPI

ATLANTA -- A former Georgia sheriff has allegedly admitted ordering the slaying of a man who defeated him in his bid for re-election.

Former DeKalb County Sheriff Sidney Dorsey allegedly confessed during a prison interview with prosecutors that he ordered the death of Sheriff-elect Derwin Brown in 2000, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution said Thursday.

Dorsey, who was convicted in 2002 of masterminding the assassination, claimed he later changed his mind about the order but Brown was killed anyway, DeKalb District Attorney Gwen Keyes Fleming said.

Dorsey is serving a life sentence.
