Former Wayne County Clerk Arrested, Indicted

Forty-year-old Jennifer "Melissa" Turpin of Monticello is lodged in the Pulaski County jail in lieu of $25,000 full cash bond.

A Pulaski County grand jury indicted Turpin on one count of forgery, Second Degree, a Class D felony, and one count of being a persistent felony offender, First Degree, a Class B felony.

The charges against Turpin follow an attorney general's investigation that began last August. Turpin, the office manager and title clerk for Somerset Auto Auction, is accused of forging the signature of Pulaski County Clerk Ralph Troxell on a title for a 2008 Toyota Highlander sold on Craigslist to a Maryland resident.

Turpin is also currently on probation in Franklin Circuit Court for filing false returns and failure to pay tax and in Wayne Circuit Court for abuse of public trust over $10,000.
