Former Social Worker Faces Tampering Charge
HOPKINSVILLE, KY - A former social worker in western Kentucky has been indicted on a charge of tampering with public records.
The Kentucky New Era reports a Christian County grand jury handed down the felony indictment on Friday against 41-year-old Donna Currey, who handled investigations into two high-profile abuse cases that ended when the children were killed. The newspaper reports that Currey quit her job in October after being accused by a state official of falsifying records.
Currey was involved in the cases of Amy Dye, whose adoptive older brother beat her to death, and 3-year-old Alayna Adair, who died from brain trauma. Adair's father, Charles Timothy Morris, has pleaded not guilty to murder.
Court records do not indicate whether Currey has hired an attorney.
