Ex-Ballard jailers indicted on counts of misconduct

Staff report

Attorney General Andy Beshear and the Department of Criminal Investigations announced Monday indictments against two former Ballard County officials, each on a count of official misconduct.

Former Ballard County Jailer Mike Horn, 70, of Wickliffe, and former Deputy Jailer Monica Galloway, 45, of Bardwell, were indicted by a Ballard County grand jury concerning record keeping at the Ballard County Detention Center, Beshear said.

Investigators played a critical role leading to the indictments, which stemmed from findings in the 2013 Ballard County Fiscal Court Audit, the attorney general said. The state auditor referred findings to the attorney general's office in July 2015, prompting an investigation.

"As attorney general, I will not tolerate public corruption," Beshear said.
