Statement from Auditor Galloway on criminal charges filed against Madison County deputy collector

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today released a statement following five felony charges of stealing against the former Madison County deputy collector, Kelsey Gresham. Last month, Auditor Galloway released an audit completed by the Public Corruption and Fraud Division, detailing how more than $13,000 went missing from the Madison County Collector's Office between January 2017 and October 2018.

"Missourians have zero tolerance for corruption and abuse from those who are in positions of public trust. Rooting out government corruption and fraud has and will remain a top priority for me. My office will continue to partner with law enforcement to pursue justice for Madison County taxpayers."
