Special Prosecutor Appointed In
Christian County Jail Investigation
A special prosecutor is in place to begin investigating the alleged mismanagement of funds at the Christian County Jail. Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway's Communications Director Allison Martin says 45th Judicial Circuit Commonwealth's Attorney Ralph Vick has been appointed. Vick is the chief prosecutor for Muhlenberg and McClean Counties. He says at this point he is attempting to orient himself with the case.
Martin says she cannot comment on the investigation, just confirm that a special prosecutor has been appointed to look into the allegations of mismanagement of jail funds. The request for a special prosecutor was made Circuit Judge Andrew Self after a jury found Honey Darlene Summers guilty in October of stealing money from the jail and recommended a sentence of 18 months in prison.
