MARCH 7, 2017, - written by WADE QUEEN

The number of arrests in Lawrence Co.were down by half the average when compared to the number of arrests in each week of the last yhree months.

While arrests have been somewhat above average in the neighboring counties, many of those arrests have been for serious charges, and many of those booked at the Big Sandy Regional Detention Center in Paintsville are being denied bail and bond, causing the jail to be "filled to the gills" to a record number of current incarcerations.

The BSRDC reported maximum inmate capacity is for 225 inmates, and usually in the past on an average day, the daily inmate numbers were around 195 to 210 inmates. On March 7, at 6 p.m., there were 267 inmates booked at the jail.

Most of the arrests in Lawrence county in the past week were also for serious charges as well. the names of the eight people arrested in the past week are the following:

Jobe's office gets good report card

Chris Jobe at Fiscal Court  meetingChris Jobe at Fiscal Court meetingFRANKFORT, Ky. – State Auditor Mike Harmon today released the audit of the 2015 financial statement of Lawrence County Clerk Chris Jobe.

State law requires the auditor to conduct annual audits of county clerks and sheriffs.

Auditing standards require the auditor’s letter to communicate whether the financial statement presents fairly the receipts, disbursements and excess fees of the Lawrence County Clerk in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America.

The clerk’s financial statement did not follow this format. However, the clerk’s financial statement is fairly presented in conformity with the regulatory basis of accounting, which is an acceptable reporting methodology. This reporting methodology is followed for all 120 clerk audits in Kentucky.

The auditor noted no instances of noncompliance.

The auditor also noted no matters involving internal control over financial reporting and its operation that were considered to be material weaknesses.

The county clerk’s responsibilities include collecting certain taxes, issuing licenses, maintaining county records and providing other services. The clerk’s office is funded through statutory fees collected in conjunction with these duties. The audit report can be found on the auditor’s website.
