Garth Day Charged with Forty Three Criminal Charges

Article Date: 
1 October, 2010 - 06:30

Garth Day, former County Council Administrator has been charged with forty three criminal charges.  Day has been being investigated for the past few months, and the investigation has finally reached the point at which charges are being filed.  Day has been served with 38 felony and 5 misdemeanors.  He has been subpeonaed to appear in the Second District Court in Morgan on Monday, October 4, 2010 at 9:00 a.m.
The charges were filed by Morgan County Attorney Jann Farris.
In a press release  this afternoon, by Morgan County Sheriff Gene Ercanbrack , it says:
"Garth B. Day became the subject of a financial investigation regarding unaccounted Morgan County funds.  The Morgan County Treasurer, Ms. Thomson reported she had discovered various discrepancies regarding documentation and suspicious statements made to her by Garth Day when questioned about the funds.  Treasurer Bonnie Thomson then contacted Sheriff Gene Ercanbrack who initiated a preliminary investigation into the matter that produced evidence of criminal activity.  Sheriff Ercanbrack then assigned Chief Deputy Kevin Edwards and Detective Bill Wentland to the investigation.  The subsequent investigation by the officers revealed evidence that Garth Day had opened various credit card accounts, obtained fraudulent bank loans and manufactured several counterfeit documents using Morgan County’s name as a vehicle to commit theft of monies.  

He also forged county official’s signatures on loan documents.  This investigation revealed a substantial amount of documental evidence to support the charges being filed.  The investigation is still ongoing as several financial institutions have not responded as of yet to the investigative subpoenas they were served.  The investigation has revealed that the amount of money involved is going to reach several hundred thousands of dollars.  There will be no further information released because of the ongoing investigation.  Garth Day has retained legal counsel and he was being served a summons and information to appear in Second District Court in Morgan County on Monday, October 4, 2010 at 9:00 a.m. to answer the following charges."
