Testimony Wraps
In Embezzlement Trial


The evidentiary portion of the embezzlement trial of Honey Darlene Summers wrapped up Tuesday afternoon.

The seventh day of testimony began with the continuation of Summers testimony in her own defense. Summers answered questions from Commonwealth Attorney Gail Guiling about why she stopped paying bills and making deposits after Brad Boyd became jailer.


Guiling asked why she did not report money missing from each deposit over the course of 4 years.


When asked about the investigators testimony that Summers confessed to taking funds, Summers claimed that she never said those things.


She told the jury that the investigators must have been mistaken or misunderstood what she told them.


Summers says during the 7 weeks between the interviews with investigators she couldn't find her records.


After hearing from two rebuttal witnesses testimony finished Tuesday afternoon. Circuit Judge Andrew Self explained to the jury that when they reconvened Wednesday morning, they would receive jury instructions and then hear closing arguments. The case will then go to the jury for deliberation.

Summers is accused of stealing more than 39 thousand dollars in inmate fees from the Christian County Jail from 2004 to 2007.
