NEWPORT - Tens of thousands of dollars worth of bail bonds are being turned over to the Kentucky State Treasury each year because people who posted the bonds fail to claim the money after the defendant shows up in court. Campbell Circuit Clerk Taunya Nolan Jack is trying to track down those people and return their money before it has to be turned over to the state treasury. A bookkeeper in the office, Lisa Auteri-McIntyre, has been searching court records, the Internet and reverse directories to try to pair the money with its owners.
