PINEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Some charges against Bell County Clerk Rebecca Blevins have been dismissed, but a judge allowed one charge to move forward.
Circuit Clerk Colby Slusher's office says the judge dismissed charges of theft and official misconduct. Slusher's office said the judge decided that a grand jury should consider a charge of criminal possession of a forged instrument.
Two deputies in Blevins' office, Kayla Carnes and Connie Watkins, and former deputy Flora Ferrell had conspiracy charges dismissed, but the circuit clerk's office said charges of criminal possession of a forged instrument stand against Carnes and Watkins.
The charges were dismissed Monday without prejudice, meaning they could be reinstated.
All four pleaded not guilty to the charges last month
