Grand jury returns indictments

A former Winchester-Clark County Parks and Recreation employee charged with stealing more than $10,000 from the department has been indicted.

Dosha Plummer, 36, was indicted Thursday by the Clark County Grand Jury for theft by unlawful taking over $10,000. The charge is a Class C felony and could carry a sentence of five to 10  years if convicted.

In January, an audit of the 2016-17 fiscal year uncovered a number of issues within the parks department, including an employee who had taken $15,000.

Plummer was previously employed at the department as an administrative specialist. According to the indictment, Plummer took money from the department while she employed there.

Parks Board Chairman Charlie Eury told The Sun in February the employee, who had not been named at the time, repaid the money to the department and resigned. Criminal charges were not pursued by the department at that time.

However, the Winchester Board of Commissioners voted to turn over any information regarding the theft to local law enforcement. The department receives almost 60 percent of its funding from the city and Clark County, according to the audit.

Plummer had not been arrested as of press time and no court date had been set.
