The state auditor has found at least $8,000 worth of questionable expenses in the operation of the Dallas County Jail. The attorney general asked for the audit after allegations surfaced that former Jail Administrator Deke Gliem was giving female jail inmates phone cards and other personal items — if they would perform “personal favors” for him.
Gliem resigned last fall. The audit uncovered nearly $6,000 worth of unaccounted for phone cards. The audit also found over $2,300 worth of fingerprinting fees were not properly accounted for. There were incomplete records for commissary items like snacks and toiletries — the items the jail administrator is accused of using in exchange for those sexual “favors” from female inmates.
The Dallas County sheriff issued a statement, saying he and his staff have addressed all the issues raised by the audit and either have corrective measures in place, or plans have been drafted to make the changes soon.
