On April 17th, indictment true bills were established by the Harlan County Grand Jury for 47-year-old Jeannie Crain of Bledsoe Kentucky and 29-year-old Kaley Butcher of Baxter.  The women were arrested on Tuesday, April 23rd.

Butcher’s indictment states that on or about January 2018 through December 2023 she fraudulently used a debit/credit card belonging to the school for unauthorized purchases for her personal benefit over $1,000 but under $10,000.
