Am I the only one who finds it hard to believe they did not have a more reliable system of handling their finances?

If one guilty deputy clerk has to make restitution of just $4000.00 and the other guilty one of $22,ooo; who has to pay back the other $38,000? Where is the justice in that? Shame on our so-called court system.

Is it possible someone else was involved in the theft?

I'm relieved to see we probably will have a new clerk,come November. Who's responsible for the remaining $38,000.00 that was embezzled? A very poor system that was let go way too long.
