DAWSON, GA (WALB) -

The Program Manager of a South Georgia Juvenile office has been fired following a state investigation into grant funds.

Cassandra Scott was fired Friday from her job with the Department of Juvenile Justice for Randolph, Terrell, Clay and Quitman Counties.

According to a statement from the DJJ, Georgia's Inspector General was investigating how grant money was being used by the office after getting information about "inappropriate expenditures."
