In Florida, a Lake Worth woman was arrested on Friday after turning herself in at the Palm Beach County Jail. The former employee of the Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller’s Office was arrested on charges of altering driving records while was working at the courthouse in Belle Glade.
In July, clerk staff reviewed traffic records and noticed a discrepancy between clerk records and those of the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Following an audit, the clerk’s office discovered that the 27-year-old had improperly cleared driver’s license suspensions ten times earlier this year.
The improperly cleared suspensions were re-entered correctly, and the woman was fired on July 31. Her case was turned over to the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
