Auditor Demands $13,000 From Former Pontotoc County Worker

JACKSON – State Auditor Stacey Pickering’s office has issued a demand of $13, 934.97 to former Pontotoc County Deputy Chancery Clerk Allison Stegall.

“I’m proud of the work that both our county auditors and investigators have done on this case, and we look forward to making the taxpayers whole,” said Stacey Pickering.

Evidence shows that cash paid by local taxpayers on land redemption releases was taken before the daily deposit was made in the Chancery Clerk’s Land Redemption Account. Auditors from the State Auditor’s Office discovered a shortage in the land redemption account while conducting the annual audit in October of 2013.

Stegall resigned from her position as Deputy Clerk in December of 2013.
