Owsley County Clerk Shanna Oliver has been indicted for tampering with vehicle registration records and official misconduct, according to a release Thursday from Attorney General Russell Coleman’s office.

A Franklin County Grand Jury indicted Oliver Wednesday on one count of tampering with public records, a Class D felony, and one count of second-degree official misconduct, a Class B misdemeanor.

The indictment alleges that from Feb. 1, 2022 through Dec. 31, 2023, Oliver, 41, of Booneville, unlawfully refused to deliver public records in her possession to public servants from the Kentucky Department of Vehicle Regulation, who were entitled to receive the records for examination or other purposes. The indictment also alleges that Oliver refrained from performing her duty when she failed to send paperwork regarding the purchase of a trailer to the Kentucky Department of Vehicle Regulation.
