AG Suing to Remove Lewis County Trustee

Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper is suing to remove Lewis County trustee Clark Carroll after state comptroller’s office auditors found $45,000 missing. According to the Chattanooga Times Free Press, the audit found that Carroll failed to deposit property tax payments on numerous occasions, wrote checks to himself from the county’s bank account and fabricated information on check memos, check stubs and receipts for deposits. Cooper is asking the court to suspend Carroll while the case is pending.
