MOREHEAD, Ky. (WKYT) - It's been a day since Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis was released from jail.

Davis didn't return to work Wednesday, and her attorneys said she would wait a few days before returning to work.

Nonetheless, her supporters didn't waste any time in changing their focus from freeing Davis to targeting her deputy clerks. Protesteors say Davis' deputy clerks are the ones breaking the law.

"These people should be fired here today who are breaking Kentucky law and going against the will of 75 percent of voters here!" a protester yelled.

Wednesday morning, Brian Mason, a deputy clerk, finalized the marriage license of a couple from San Francisco. He told reporters that while Davis was jailed her office issued 10 licenses -- seven to same sex couples.

Mason told that couple once Davis returned he would continue to issue those licenses, even if Davis instructed him not to.

One of the men, Mark Shrayber, said he and his husband had been welcomed in Morehead.

"It seems like a lot of people are a little embarrassed about this whole situation," he said.

That include Dewayne Barnett who came to the clerks office on other business but told one protesters to "get a life."

"Why shouldn't they be allowed, the gays and lesbians, why shouldn't they be allowed the same misery that I have in my marriage?" Barnett said. "They should be allowed to get married."

When he ordered Davis released U.S. District Judge David Bunning also ordered her to not interfere with her clerks who were issuing marriage licenses.

Unlike the last few weeks there were no protesters from the other side of the issue. They said they said they didn't plan on returning, unless Davis orders her office to stop issuing licenses, which they expect will happen.

"Judge Bunning has already issued that there will be sanctions if she continues to refuse, so there will likely be jail time, and that's between her and her attorneys," Nashia Fife of the Rowan County Rights Coalition said.

Part of that order from Bunning includes status updates every two weeks on her deputy clerks to make sure they are still issuing those licenses.

The Rowan County Attorney had referred charges of official misconduct against Davis to Attorney General Jack Conway. Conway's office said on Wednesday that they weren't pursuing those at this time because a federal court has control of the matter.

Meanwhile, Davis' attorneys said the clerk was going through "hundreds and hundreds" of letters that were sent to Davis while she was in jail. They released a photo of Davis going through fan mail she received while in jail. They say she's returning to work on Monday.

"I am deeply moved by all those who prayed for me," Davis said in a statement. "All I can say is that I am amazed and very grateful. I am enjoying spending time with my husband, my family, and my three dogs. I have also been spending time reading boxes of letters expressing support and prayers from people around the country."

Davis said she has not "made a dent" in the pile of letters.
