Employee theft alleged at Edgar County Health Dept. –

By John Kraft & Kirk Allen

On August 13, 2019


A now-former employee, Courtni Hays, of the Edgar County Health Department is alleged to have stolen or otherwise misappropriated funds from the health department.

She has since resigned, the Edgar County Sheriff’s Department has completed its investigation, and information forwarded to Edgar County State’s Attorney Mark Isaf for his determination on whether to prosecute or not.

We understand the dollar amount to be between $1500 AND $3500 over a period of about three years.

Theft of public funds is nothing new to the Edgar County Health Department.  Former employee Chandra Smith was convicted in May of 2013 for a Class 1 felony and ordered restitution to the Edgar County Health Department to the tune of $21,754.85.

We will provide more information when it becomes available.
