New Shelby County Criminal Court Clerk Heidi Kuhn has ordered a forensic audit of her office after finding several issues she said were troubling enough to ask for a full financial review, The Daily Memphian reports. Kuhn, who has only been in office 90 days, said her team found a number of issues, including that no payments collected from court fines had been disbursed to other county agencies since 2016, financial records were maintained in unsecured computer files and that collections on delinquent accounts ceased in 2016. The new administration also discovered checks that Kuhn said had been sitting for some time without being deposited.
