Isn't this a real job for the "Grand Jury" to investigate . Who do we,the people,contact to get this accomplished?

If my memory serves me correctly, a grand jury for a county can only be impaneled by the Circuit Judge for that county. I don't think there is anyone alive in the county that can remember that ever happening in this county.

Also, again if my memory serves me correct, isn't this the same office that was closed for two weeks because the elected person could not be bonded for that period of time. I believe all the other elected office holders covered for her during that time and did not report it.

Or use your influence to do it.

Patrol cars are only cost effective for about two years or so. Cost more to keep them running than a replacement cost.
My understanding was they were purchased by Federal grant money, not Carter County tax money. Bet Mr. Reporter will correct me if my facts are wrong,and of course I welcome that.

The Sheriff's Office has a budget just like all County Departments, and is answerable to the County Council.

Sounds to me just like the usual Carter County justice. No need for a Grand Jury investigation, some one has already been judged guilty. even lost everything she and her husband owned. Some justice....wait a while before you judge people, people, Truth will out.

I don't know that they "lost" their property. I was being sarcastic about all of the rumors flying around. Rumors that some people repeat as fact.
Go figure..........

You can read about this on channel 12 news page ,

Carter County Prosecutor Rocky Kingree says county collector Jennifer Clark-Williams resigned Monday.

According to auditors, Clark-Williams cannot explain what happened to at least $3,817 in property tax receipts.

Apparently they were received but not deposited between November of 2010 and November of 2011.

Rocky Kingree says they have almost completed a criminal investigation involving the funds Williams cannot account for and are reviewing possible felony charges.

Williams remains on the job.

Jennifer Clark-Williams told Heartland News on Monday the collector's office is looking into what happened to the money, but she cannot comment further.
