Morgan County Sheriff's Office Jail Inmate Accounts - Will the Correct Budget Please Stand Up

Sheriff Franklin according to the State Examiners Audit from December 1, 2011 – May 31, 2014. You received 1,539,773.82 money for county and state inmates.  The Federal Inmate fund as identified in the Alabama Examiners audit reflects total receipts of 1,237,490.88.  Your Jail inmate ledgers reflects the total receipts and disbursements at 2,067,772.69 from January 18, 2011 – 31 December 2013.  Your independent auditor’s compilation report reflects that you received 1,344,708.25 in the inmate housing account.  The independent auditor included the Federal inmate jail account in with the Jail Inmate Funds.  I am confused how as to how these figures can vary so dramatically.  Especially since the Alabama Examiners audit covers an additional six months’ time frame.

I admit I don’t know much about budget but it seems to me that if you have two separate inmate jail accounts one for state and one for federal you would do as the State Examiner did which is to identify each of these accounts independently. 

There is a huge monetary difference in these accounts.  I mean a few hundred thousand differences in each of these accounts.
