Report: $48K missing from two jail accounts
Thursday, June 21, 2012
A review of two accounts that had been managed by a former Cole County Sheriff’s Department jail clerk shows nearly $48,000 may have been taken from them.
The former clerk — Gina Freeman, 35, Jefferson City — was charged last month with stealing from those accounts.
At Wednesday’s Cole County Commission meeting, commissioners went over a review done by County Auditor Jim LePage, which concluded the account balances as of May 17 are inaccurate and are not where LePage’s office believes they should have been.
