Charges dropped against former Ballard County Jailer

Official misconduct charges against two former Ballard County Jail employees have been dismissed.

The West Kentucky Star reports special prosecutor Jeff Edwards moved for the charges to be dropped Friday. 

Former jailer Mike Horn and former deputy jailer Monica Galloway were accused of not documenting receipts and not depositing funds. They both entered not guilty pleas last month. 

The Star’s post says the charges were dismissed after it was revealed the charges were filed more than a year after the events that led to them. The statute of limitations for misdemeanors in Kentucky is one year.
