Sewer Clerk Indicted for Missing Funds

The city of Corydon's sewer clerk, who has been on administrative leave since January, was indicted Tuesday for theft by unlawful taking over $10,000. That's a Class C felony punishable by five to 10 years in prison. Melissa Clark, 47, was placed on leave a month before the state auditor's office released a damning report in February that showed more than $81,000 unaccounted for in the city's finances.
