Grand jury clears Ellerby

Gretchen Ellerby, the former Lamar County commission office manager, payroll clerk and human resources director, was cleared of all wrongdoing by the December term Lamar County grand jury. In its presentments, the grand jury noted only that they heard reports from the GBI and sheriff’s investigators and determined there was not enough evidence to warrant further inquiry into any charges of wrongdoing by Ellerby. The grand jury also recommended Ellerby be offered her job back or be allowed to receive unemployment benefits. Ellerby was fired after her superiors alleged she had given herself an unauthorized salary increase of $5000 per year.
