BREAKING: Formal charges filed

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

The Clay County Prosecutor's Office filed formal charges against former Brazil Clerk-Treasurer Tracy Webster in Clay Superior Court Wednesday afternoon.

Webster, 42, Brazil, turned herself in at the Clay County Justice Center Tuesday after an arrest warrant was issued Tuesday on allegations she mishandled municipal funds.

On Wednesday, Webster was formally charged with one class C felony Forgery and three class D felony Theft charges.

Webster is currently out on bond while awaiting further court proceedings.

Thank you Rollie Coster... LOL

I was kind of in a hurry and didn't see the typo mistake.

As an occassional reader of the Brazil Times, I have found it facinating how quickly readers and reporters have "jumped on the bandwagon" against the previous clerk and the mayor. We all could benefit with a good dose of "fact checking" I think. For instance I found that Websters "recent bankruptcy" actually occured over 9 years ago. According to court records (which someone must have missed), Webster has repaid $1700 of the orignal approximately $2000 owed. Webster was not even clerk when she supposedly "overpaid" her daughter (which, by the way, amounted to $42 over a period of 8 weeks). How much more is inaccurate?
