Florida Supreme Court to hear case between Alachua County and Sheriff Sadie Darnell

By  | 

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (WCJB) - A legal battle between Alachua County and Sheriff Sadie Darnell is headed to the state supreme court.

The court announced Tuesday they will accept jurisdiction over the case, which centers around the sheriff's ability to move money around in her budget without approval from the county.

A lower court sided with the sheriff last year.

Initial briefs need to be submitted before a court date can be set.
