Our sources tell us that the food service bill for the Morgan County jail doubled the first month after Franklin dropped Halsey Foods for a new vendor. In July 2015 Franklin's son-in-law Derek Sheats was hired as a sales representative for one of the food source competitors of Halsey Foods. Franklin quickly transferred the jail food service contract to the vendor her son-in-law works for. The food bill doubled the first month after the transfer of services. We understand that A1, AKA Kentucky, Franklin went ballistic. That just goes to show Derek is learning from the best.
Corrections on Erika (Franklin) (Turner) Sheats' employment with the Morgan County Sheriff's Office. We understand that Erika was most likely paid with gift certificates during her employment.
