Commissioners, county attorney spar over access to jail probe
The sheriff’s department and county attorney’s office are in the process of a wider audit, delving into years’ worth of payroll records of current and former employees.
Nelson remains free on bail, and faces up to 7 ½ to 15 years in state prison if she is convicted.
Nelson’s husband, Keith, has not been charged in the case.
He said that so far the investigation has showed that policies at the jail regarding overtime were not followed.
Indictments say Nelson funneled money from last July until about May 15.
“We are going backwards from there to see when it all went off the rails,” Reams said.
“Unfortunately, what they would do is they would go to any supervisor to sign off (on overtime),” Coyle said. “That’s not the way it’s supposed to work.”
He said that commissioners have since spoken to jail staff to ensure policies about overtime are being followed closely.
“She got caught because of the checks and balances,” Coyle said, referring to Nelson.
