Washington County Jail Administrator Resigns
Washington County’s jail administrator has quit. Sheriff Donnie Smith tells TV5 that Captain Robert Gross sent in his letter of resignation on Friday. Last week, a report was released by the county’s lawyer, stating nearly $7,300 from the Inmate Benefit Account was misused, and that the money was used or approved by Gross and jail clerk Sgt. Karina Richardson to buy items including bras, cellphones, and clothing. Richardson was fired last week. There was a hearing set for this week to determine whether to fire Gross: that meeting is no longer necessary.
