Supporters of Tim Watford write 80 letters to judge

RUSSELL COUNTY, AL (WTVM) -

Supporters of a former sheriff's deputy in Russell County are urging a judge to sentence him to probation instead of prison.  

Tim Watford was convicted along with another former deputy, Kirby Dollar, of beating a handcuffed man.

Friends, former colleagues and family have written more than 80 letters to the judge, attesting to Watford's character.

He and Dollar are scheduled to be sentenced Friday.
