ROSELAND, Ind. - The former town clerk of Roseland is being asked to pay back nearly $16,000 dollars in misspent funds.

Last December, Susan Hammons was sentenced to one-year probation on a criminal charge of official misconduct.

A state audit completed this month puts a price tag on that misconduct.

It alleges that Hammons spent $946 in town funds to cover her personal expenses, like gas and hotel stays.

She is also being asked to pay $15,000 worth of fines and penalties imposed on the town for late tax payments to the IRS and Indiana Department of Revenue.
