Ex-Limestone County Sheriff sentence to begin on Friday
LIMESTONE Co., Ala. (WAFF) - Ex-Limestone County Sheriff Mike Blakely made a social media post on Wednesday evening stating that he will start his three-year sentence on Friday, Feb. 24.
I’m still in the fight of my life. It seems like I’m in a race with no finish line, but I am humbled beyond anyone’s imagination for the outpouring of support and kindness shown by so many friends and supporters. The hundreds of Facebook comments, calls, and prayers are so encouraging. I start my sentence in Franklin county this Friday. I will be just fine, and I will continue to fight until I win.
Blakely was found guilty in 2021 for first-degree theft of property and use of official position or office for personal gain.
