Summers Testifies During
Jail Embezzlement Trial
Jurors heard Monday from the defendant in the Christian County Jail embezzlement trial. Former bookkeeper Honey Darlene Summers took the stand to testify shortly after 11:00am. Summers is on trial for allegedly stealing more than $39,000 from the jail commissary fund.
Testimony began Monday morning with the jury hearing from Christian County Treasurer Walter Cummins. The jury then heard from County Attorney Mike Foster. When answering questions from defense attorney Ben Fletcher, Foster told jurors he requested an audit of both the jail and commissary income and expenditures when he learned there was a problem.
Judge Andrew Self is hoping to wrap up the trial on Wednesday.
