That prompted state police to investigate and led to a six count indictment against Clower.

From there, Clower is said to have deposited those checks into his own bank account.
He is currently on unpaid leave from his jobs as County Administrator and Public Service Authority Director. He's awaiting a July trial.
Rosemary Pace is on paid leave from her job as Assistant to the Controller.

Virginia's Governor wants to extend the unemployment benefits upped after September eleventh into the summer of 2003.

And, on the issue of the national motto, Warner says he has signed legislation requiring "In God We Trust" to be posted in all state courtrooms.
