Audit examines spending at Owsley County clerks office

A Southeastern Kentucky clerk's office is under investigation by the state.

State Auditor Adam Edelen says the audit of Owsley County Clerk Sid Gabbards office from 2010 included more than 15 examples of problematic financial practices.

Edelen says Gabbard's office had a known deficit of $61,398 at the end of 2010.

Officials say the amount might have been higher, but there was no way to determine the total.

Gabbard said he plans to change bookkeeping procedures to fix the problems identified in the audit but hadn't finished that process.

Edelen has referred the findings to state and federal authorities.

The release on the audit is attached to this story.
