Hobby Walker resigned Wednesday afternoon from his office of Sheriff of Winston County. Citing family reasons for resigning, following state law, the position was filled immediately with the swearing-in of Larry Gilliland, Winston County Coroner. Gilliland will fill the position until Governor Robert Bentley can appoint a replacement to fill Walker's remaining term in office.
