Charges Likely to be Dismissed Against Former Glasgow City Employees

Criminal charges will likely be dismissed against two former Glasgow city employees.

Former City Treasurer Susie Pollock and her sister Lorene Hoffman, who once worked for the Glasgow Police Department, resigned in early 2004 amid allegations they attempted to defraud the city.

Nov. 26 in court, Special Prosecutor Matthew Leveridge recommended the criminal charges be dismissed.

He says he believes this is a civil matter.

A city audit in 2003 turned up some payroll irregularities.

Pollock and Hoffman maintain the hours were altered under the direction of Glasgow Mayor Darrell Pickett, Hoffman's direct supervisor at the time.

Pickett denied the allegations and charges against him were dismissed last year.

Barren Circuit Judge Phil Patton is expected to rule on the motion.
