Chancery Judges Repay Money Owed To State

Two Harrison County Chancery Judges have repaid the money they owe the state.

Senior Chancellor J. N. Randall and Judge Tom Teel faced a 5 p.m. deadline Friday to repay thousands in unauthorized travel expenses.

An eight-month investigation found Randall received $3,600 and Teel more than $8,400 from the state in unauthorized mileage and meal reimbursements. Both agreed to repay the money and resign from the bench. Teel and Randall will retire at the end of the month.

Gov. Ronnie Musgrove must appoint replacements. A spokesman for the governor said on Friday that Musgrove will choose the replacements as soon as possible, but he has not yet compiled a list of candidates.
