A former jail employee at the Clay County Detention Center turns herself in after she is charged with 19 counts of theft that totals up to nearly 100-thousand dollars.

Rosa Lee Vallance allegedly used the money for personal use during a period of more than two years.

Vallance turned herself in around 8:45 Wednesday morning at the Clay County Sheriff's Office.

The indictment, handed down on July 1st, states she converted a little more than $93,000 for her own use between July of 2007 and May of 2009.

The amounts she took out vary from just a few hundred dollars to almost $50,000 at a time.

The assistant commonwealth's attorney declined to comment on the case and the jailer was not available.

Vallance was taken to the Clay County Detention Center.

Vallance is the daughter of former Clay County Jailer, Charles Marcum.

She was released on a $100,000 bond.

Vallance is scheduled to appear in Clay County Circuit Court on August 2nd.
