The former McCracken County property valuation administrator lately under fire for alleged mismanagement of her office faced another investigation, but the Kentucky State Police said Wednesday they don't expect to file any new charges.

Nancy Bock, 61, is serving a four-year sentence after pleading guilty to charges of forgery and theft regarding personal use of taxpayer resources.

Bock resigned in September 2018, when she was indicted on those charges, and current PVA Bill Dunn, who was appointed to take her place, immediately noticed what he described as significant deficiencies in the office's records.

Now nearly a year into his time as PVA, Dunn has discovered numerous undervalued or unassessed properties, which culminated in a recent report to the McCracken County Fiscal Court that the county's properties could be under-assessed by between $1 billion and $3 billion.

State police spokesman Trooper Bryan Luckett did not disclose any specific charges that had been explored, but said the agency has received multiple complaints regarding Bock and said there is "nothing new" to report.

"We do not expect any (new charges) as of now," Luckett said.

"That's not to say that somebody might call in tomorrow with some new facts ... and we might start looking at something else, but as of right now, it's just an open case."

Luckett said a prosecutor's office would need to review the case, to determine whether any new charges should be brought.

Defense attorney Mark Bryant, who represented Bock in her theft and forgery case, said he hadn't heard anything regarding a new investigation, and had not been retained to represent Bock as of Wednesday afternoon.

Bock is serving her sentence in the Marshall County Jail, and is eligible for parole in March.
