Ex-Ballard County jailers indicted on counts of misconduct

WICKLIFFE, Ky. (AP) – Two former Ballard County jailers have been indicted, each on one count of official misconduct.

The Paducah Sun reports (http://bit.ly/1TanY8Q) Attorney General Andy Beshear announced Monday that 70-year-old former Ballard County jailer Mike Horn and 45-year-old former deputy jailer Monica Galloway were indicted by a grand jury concerning record keeping at the Ballard County Detention Center.

Beshear says the indictments stemmed from findings in the 2013 Ballard County Fiscal Court Audit. The state auditor referred findings to the attorney general’s office in July 2015, prompting an investigation.
