Woman Is Charged with Destroying Public Records

February 3, 2008

Not to overload you with record tampering, but here is another instance where documents were involved in foul play. (Hey, if we didn’t think this was an important issue, we wouldn’t keep brining it up!) According to this article in the Louisville Courier-Journal, Sonya Parrott Akers, who unsuccessfully ran for Bell County Circuit Court clerk last year, is being charged with tampering with public records.

After leaving her job as a secretary in the Bell County attorney’s office in January, County Attorney Neil Ward said that Akers returned and “either stole or destroyed thousands of documents.”

These missing documents can end up costing the office an unthinkable amount of money, something local taxpayers probably won’t be happy about. All the office can do is better protect itself for the next time a former employee gets the urge to create public havoc.
