Former Martin County Clerks Arraigned

{Inez, Kentucky}…Tonya Mills Delong, 47, and Tamberlyn Sue Hairston, also known as "Tammy Perry", 41, both of Lovely, were arraigned Thursday morning after being charged with abuse of public trust. The former deputy clerks in the Martin County Circuit Clerk’s office, who are also the daughters of current Circuit Clerk Carol Sue Mills, were recently indicted following an investigation by the Kentucky State Auditor's office that found more than $20,000 in unaccounted funds in the clerk's office. Both women pleaded not guilty, and a January 17th pre-trial was set.
