County attorney files claim against former sheriff

Whitley County has filed a claim against former Sheriff Lawrence Hodge's surety bond company.

County officials say it is an effort to recover some of the money missing during Hodge's tenure as sheriff.

The county attorney told the fiscal court that he had filed the claim and believes the county is entitled to at least $200,000.

County Judge Executive Pat White said it has taken some time to get the claim filed because they needed a restitution order from the court.
