KY Animal Control Director Indicted
June 29, 2012
The director of the Caldwell Co pound in KY, Abigail Tucker, has been indicted by a grand jury on charges stemming from incidents occurring between 2007 and 2010. The charges seem to involve money although there is a reference to “property” as well:
[T]here are several acts by Ms. Tucker which involve improper accounting of monies given to her as donations, failure to make proper dispositions and accounting of property that she had possession of as the animal control officer here in Caldwell County. Improperly inducing donations to the animal shelter,” [Commonwealth Attorney G.L.] Ovey said.
Ms. Tucker, who is also a police officer, has additionally been indicted on the submission of false pay vouchers for county employees. She is currently on paid suspension and set to be arraigned in August.
