Judge Rejects Deal In Summers Case



The case of the woman accused of embezzling from the Christian County Jail took an unexpected turn Wednesday afternoon in Christian Circuit Court when the judge in the case rejected an agreement that had been reached to bring the case to an end. Honey Darlene Summers was in Christian Circuit Court for the purpose of resolving the case against her, in which she is accused of stealing jail funds while she was employed at the Christian County Jail as a bookkeeper.

The deal would have placed Summers in a pretrial diversion program. It would also have allowed Summers to have avoided any jail time and the offenses would not have shown up on her record.

Circuit Judge Andrew Self was critical of attorneys on both sides, and, in rejecting the deal ordered the parties to continue to try and find a fair resolution.


   
The deal would also have allowed Summers to have avoided any jail time and the offenses would not have shown up on her record, which Judge Self said was inappropriate for a case involving funds stolen from the public, if it is in fact a theft case. The case was then continued until March 5th.
