Hollar-Young Released

Jennifer Hollar-Young was released from the Fayette County Jail at 6 p.m. on Friday.

The 54-year-old is the former Deputy Director of the Fayette County Community Action Commission and former President of the Washington Court House City School Board.

On November 4, 2011 a Fayette County Grand Jury indicted Hollar-Young on one count of theft and five counts of forgery, alleging she stole more than $52,000 from her former job at Community Action. The investigation involved a time frame that spans from June 2009 through October 2011.

Fayette County Sheriff’s Office investigated the complaint when the agency’s Executive Director, Bambi Baughn, reported missing dollars to the Sheriff’s office on Oct. 27, 2011.

Holar-Young resigned from the school board on November 7, 2011.

On February 13, Hollar-Young pleaded guilty in the Fayette County Common Pleas Court to all of the charges.

On March 19, she was sentenced to six months in the Fayette County Jail and five years of community control. She was also sentenced to 80 hours of community service, a $5,000 fine, and required to make $10,000 in restitution.

Due to House Bill 86 which passed in 2011, Hollar-Young was sentenced to the maximum sentencing allowed by law.

If she violates her community control, she could receive six-and-a-half years in prison and a fine of $17,500.

Hollar-Young was an employee at Community Action for 36 years.
