CHEROKEE, AL (WAFF) – Update on a librarian who allegedly misused funds.

Paige McWilliams has filed a response to a lawsuit filed against her by the city of Cherokee (AL) last month for allegations of misuse in public library funds.

Court documents show McWilliams denies all claims, and has chosen to represent herself in the case. The state audit on the missing library funds is still continuing. WAFF 48 News will keep you updated on this developing story.

According to a blog, “The small library’s annual budget is only $19,000.00, and now almost $17,000.00 of that is missing. McWilliams failed to appear at two due process hearings, and sources indicate that Mayor Chuck Lansdell has already filed an initial complaint with Colbert County District Attorney Bryce Graham Jr.”
