Audit raises several financial questions for Jackson County Sheriff's Department

JACKSON COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT) - An audit of the Jackson County Sheriff's Office raises several financial issues.

The audit shows the sheriff's fee account is missing more than $100,000 for 2011.

According to the audit, the sheriff has not paid the fiscal court $278,000 in payroll reimbursement the past two years.

"It's in black and white now and it's not what we are saying, but what the auditor is saying," said Jackson County Judge-Executive William O. Smith.

"The money has been accounted for. There is no missing money like everybody thought. The $220,00 plus has been payed back for the $278,000 that I owed the fiscal court," said Jackson Sheriff Denny Peyman.

Smith says they have not received that money. The audit also shows mismanagement of funds.
