Clerk of Court placed on administrative leave

The Timmonsville Clerk of Court has been placed on administrative leave following her arrest for forgery.

State police arrested Wilhelmina Washington last week for signing a judge's name to a document on a person who was arrested for outstanding bench warrants.

The signature could have allowed the person to be released from the Florence County Detention Center.

A warrant says Washington did not have permission from the judge to sign his name .
