3 plead guilty in Clerk of Courts case
Current, former deputy clerks get 10 years probation
Leatha Deloach
Three defendants pleaded guilty Tuesday in the case against the Bulloch County Clerk of Courts Office. Two others maintain claims of innocence; suspended Clerk of Courts Teresa Tucker stands on a not guilty plea, while an indictment was quashed last week against former clerk of courts and part time deputy clerk Sherri Akins, who has also stated she is not guilty as charged. All five — including deputy clerk Leatha Deloach and former deputy clerks Marion Puckett Williams and Amanda Kay Smith — were indicted July 8 by a Bulloch County grand jury on charges of felony theft by conversion and violation of oath by public officer.
