BELLEVILLE, Ill. -- A records clerk for an Illinois sheriff's office admits she goofed when she mistakenly faxed a request to have a deputy's son's speeding ticket fixed to the local newspaper.
Joann Reed tried to use a St. Clair County Sheriff's Department fax machine to send a copy of the ticket issued by Centreville police to that village's attorney, only to accidentally fire off the fax to the Belleville News-Democrat newsroom.
"Dismiss this case," read a handwritten note accompanying the three-page message signed by Reed. "The guy is the son of one of our deputies."

Its not a "fax clerk" as in a strictly clerical position. The county clerk is the individual responsible for processing all documents and verifying their legality. In this case, she apparently saw ticket come in from the Sherriff’s department filed it and sent it off to the DA with her own comments on it.
