Animal shelter employee suspended

Jimmie Jones charged with stealing director’s recorder


Somerset —

Hatfield said he and Commonwealth’s Attorney Eddy Montgomery have recused themselves from the case. He noted that Attorney General Jack Conway’s office is prosecuting the case. 
“I would be extremely short-handed without him and all,” said Bray. “If there’s any chance at all he can come back to work, I would greatly, greatly appreciate it.” 
Hatfield said the county can re-evaluate Jones’ work situation after his case is resolved. 
“I’m sorry, but we’ve had two other employees that we’ve had to suspend for things, and we’ve got to follow the procedures and polices and we’ll do our best to try to get you somebody over there to help you work,” said 4th District Magistrate Glenn Maxey. 
The court voted unanimously to suspend Jones without pay until his case is resolved. 
The work release inmate mentioned in Gates’ arrest warrants was not named. The second former animal shelter employee, mentioned by Hatfield during Tuesday’s meeting, was also not named.  
Capt. Shannon Smith, with SPD, declined to comment on the case and referred questions to Conway’s Office for Special Prosecutions.
