The office she had access to money as people were coming, in paying fines and and making payments of whatever licensing and other things that might go on at the probate court and again she just took, that opportunity to steal that is the allegation against Crawford County Probate Court Clerk Lindsay Gilmore Hudson according to GBI Special Agent in Charge JD Ricketts 'im law enforcement arrested.
