CALHOUN COUNTY — Former Calhoun County Chancery Clerk Jess Moore has been indicted on two counts of embezzlement, according to the State Auditor’s Office.
State Auditor Stacey Pickering says in a statement than an audit by his office in March found more than $13,894 missing from the Land Redemption account as a result of the earlier audit findings. Pickering says Moore repaid $11,826 and resigned.
Pickering says Moore owes $11,108.34, which includes the remaining $2,068.29 of principal, $41 of interest and $8,998 in investigative cost.
Moore qualified to run for re-election for chancery clerk before his March resignation and is unopposed on the Nov. 8 ballot.
