A McCracken County man was booked into jail on child pornography charges this week.

Todd Fiscal Court held its first meeting of the fiscal year this morning and received a good report on its financial standing.
Treasurer Tammy Robertson said there is 1.4 million dollars in all of the county’s accounts and said all departments came in under budget at the end of the fiscal year.
The Todd County Jail finished 20-thousand dollars under budget—which was remarkable considering the state inmate count got low at times before rebounding.
Jailer Greg Allen says he has found different ways to save money over the last few months and weathered some difficult times.
County jails depend heavily on state inmate population for funding and the Todd County Jail has seen spikes in the inmate count in recent weeks. There are currently 95 state inmates and 24 county inmates, with the state number a high for the last couple of years. Allen says he doesn’t have a perfect explanation for the spike.
Todd County Clerk Kim Chapman says tax bills will be sold to a third party next month and urges anyone who hasn’t made good or set up a payment plan to get with the county attorney as soon as possible.
