An interim clerk of court in Holmes County was appointed Monday after the previous clerk of court was arrested.
Alice Vickers, the clerk of court finance director, was named to the post.
Kyle Hudson, the former clerk of court, was arrested Tuesday night on one count of organized scheme to defraud, seven counts of official misconduct, and one count of money laundering.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement began investigating Hudson in January after an annual audit showed an increase in travel expenses made by Hudson.
Hudson indicated he had been attending training and other meetings related to work, then created fraudulent receipts and meeting agendas and submitted them for reimbursement. In 2017 and 2018 Hudson defrauded the taxpayers of more than $6,000, investigators said.
Hudson was suspended by Gov. Ron Desantis.
