Washington County jail clerk fired for allegedly misusing inmates’ funds
By Mario Moretto, BDN Staff
Washington County Commissioners voted unanimously Thursday to fire Sgt. Karina Richardson, the jail clerk. Richardson was accused of improperly using funds from an inmates' benefit account to purchase a cellphone, computer and lingerie, charges that she denied. Commissioners also heard testimony that Richardson's boss, Captain Robert Gross, had also misappropriated the funds for personal gain, but will not decide Gross' fate until next week.
