Complete Audit Report

An audit was conducted by our office of the Twenty-Third Judicial Circuit, city of DeSoto Municipal Division.

Bonds are not retrieved from the Police Department or deposited on a timely basis. The Court Clerk does not issue receipt slips for bonds received from other political subdivisions nor are bonds received from the Police Department adequately verified. In addition, bonds posted to the computer system are not reconciled to amounts deposited. Also, bond open-item listings are not reconciled to the bond bank account balance, and there are several old outstanding checks that have not been resolved. Finally, neither the police department nor the Court Clerk accounts for the numerical sequence and ultimate disposition of traffic tickets issued.
