Homerville - Clinch County Commissioners want the District Attorney to investigate several employees who accepted money from an illegal account.
They're already the focus of a federal investigation. Commissioners say they don't have the authority to hire, fire or discipline employees listed in an audit as having taken money from the account.
Superior Court Judge Brooks Blitch set up the account in 1992. It collected extra court fees from misdemeanor defendants.
Commissioners want the DA and the county's constitutional officers who oversee the employees in question to investigate Melinda Davis, Sissy Suggs and Libby Brown.
They hope the investigation will help them move on. "I think its put a blight on our county and being the chairman of the county commissioners I wish it would go away. But I have a feeling we'll be dealing with this for some more time," says Commission Chairman John Strickland.
A special election November 6 will elect a new Superior Court Clerk.
Danny Lecesse held the position for 19-years but pleaded guilty to a federal charge and resigned last month.
Deputy clerk Melinda Davis assumed the position, but agreed to resign to avoid prosecution.
