Ex-social worker faces more charges after false complaints

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) – A former state social worker charged with making false child abuse complaints against her Elizabethtown neighbors is now facing additional charges she made false abuse complaints against two people in Grayson County.

The Courier-Journal reports that Beth Bond was arrested last week on the new charges. Bond quit her social work job with the Cabinet for Health and Family Services in June after being charged in Elizabethtown with six counts of complicity to call in false complaints.

According to Kentucky State Police Detective Scotty Sharp, Bond made two unfounded accusations each against Jerry Beauchamp and Roger Allen. Beauchamp is the husband of Bond’s longtime best friend and Allen is the pastor at Bond’s local church.

Bond’s attorney Adam Cart said his client plans to plead not guilty to the charges on Thursday.
