TELL CITY - A dramatic clash Tuesday between Judge Lucy Goffinet and Jonathan Parkhurst, the county's appointed magistrate, over how to reduce the number of prisoners in the county jail led to Parkhurst's dismissal the next day.
Goffinet, Perry County's elected circuit-court judge, confirmed Thursday she had terminated Parkhurst's employment as of 4 p.m. Wednesday.
According to Goffinet and Parkhurst, the disagreement centered over the process of choosing offenders who could be released to free up jail beds.
