Jackson Co. names new circuit clerk

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON COUNTY, AR (KAIT) - The Jackson County Quorum Court has named a Newport native as the county's new circuit clerk.

The justices appointed Vera Brann Thursday evening to serve out the rest of former Circuit Clerk Lisa Turner's term.

Turner resigned after pleading guilty to theft charges for stealing $15 from her office.

County Judge Jeff Phillips says Brann will likely be sworn in next week once Governor Mike Beebe signs off on the appointment.

Brann will serve through the end of 2014 and cannot run for the office once the current term expires.
