Former Clayton Sheriff Victor Hill could be released early from federal prison


Former Clayton County Sheriff Victor Hill, currently incarcerated at FCI Forrest City Lowe in Forest City, Arkansas, may be eligible for early release from prison.

Hill, 58, began serving his sentence at the low-security facility on May 15. He was convicted of violating the civil rights of detainees under his supervision in the Clayton County Jail, resulting in an 18-month prison sentence.

Records from the Bureau of Prisons has Hill scheduled to be released on July 25, 2024, which is several months less than the 18-month sentence he originally received.

Hill, who has maintained his innocence, was convicted by a federal jury in October of violating the civil rights of six detainees at the Clayton County Jail.

The government said Hill disregarded the detainees’ constitutional rights by putting them in restraint chairs for hours as punishment. Once released from prison, Hill will be on 6 years of supervised probation and must also complete 100 hours of community service.

Hill’s attorney, Drew Finley, is awaiting the outcome of the appeal filed in March after Hill was sentenced.
