JONESBORO, Ark. (KAIT) - Former Craighead County Clerk Kade Holliday has agreed to repay the county more than $1.4 million dollars he’s alleged to have stolen.
Circuit Court Judge Richard Lusby approved on Wednesday, Sept. 10, a partial consent judgment and order.
According to the online court documents, Holliday will pay $1,415,304.79 to the county, plus $35,082.99 in interest. He will also have to pay $21,025.74 in the county’s attorney’s fees and costs.
Craighead County Judge Marvin Day responded to the consent judgment.
“This judgment is really the first step. There will be many other filings where we execute for other items, his personal property, the rental properties...We’re just trying to find assets that we can bring for the people of Craighead County,” Judge Day said.
Dustin McDaniel, one of the attorneys representing Holliday, issued the following statement Monday:
State investigators arrested Holliday on June 29 on suspicion of stealing nearly $1.6 million from the county. He is also charged with abuse of office.
He is scheduled for a pre-trial hearing on Oct. 29 with trial set to begin Nov. 9.
