Fairfield County Clerk of Courts Resigns
Fairfield County Clerk of Courts Deborah Smalley resigned yesterday after she was charged with theft in office earlier this year.
The Republican Smalley has pleaded not guilty to charges of using county employees to perform campaign work on county time. Her husband Dave has pleaded not guilty to charges of helping his wife. Both are free on bond. County commissioners plan to meet this morning to appoint an acting clerk of courts.
