Former City Clerk, Husband Request Lower Bond
By West Kentucky Star Staff
EDDYVILLE - A former Kuttawa city clerk and her husband were in court on Monday, where their lawyers petitioned the court to lower their bond.

According to the Lyon County Circuit Court Clerk, Katie and Clayton Harrison appeared for a pre-trial conference. The judge continued the case until December 20 for mediation related to the bond motions.

Both defendants are scheduled for a jury trial on May 14, 2020.

Katie Harrison is charged with 24 counts of second degree forgery, abuse of the public trust, tampering with physical evidence, theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 and theft by deception over $500. Clayton Harrison faces 10 counts of second degree possession of a forged instrument, theft by unlawful taking over $10,000 and theft by deception over $500. 

All of the charges followed a Kentucky State Police investigation in August 2018, after officials discovered financial irregularities in two different Kuttawa city accounts. Police couldn't locate the Harrisons until they were found and arrested in Sevier County, Tennessee in November 2018.
