Statement from Auditor Galloway on sentencing of former Winona clerk

Missouri State Auditor Nicole Galloway today released a statement on the sentencing of the former Winona city clerk, Terri Denton. Denton was sentenced to time in jail and will be required to pay restitution. A citizen-requested audit was issued in September 2018, which found financial discrepancies and detailed the theft.

"Last year's audit of the city of Winona detailed a serious violation of public trust that defrauded taxpayers of their hard-earned dollars. I appreciate the work of law enforcement to ensure justice for taxpayers and value our partnership to hold the former clerk accountable for her wrongdoing."
