Valerie (Jill) was the clerk for Bates County Water District #6 and # 1, and stands accused of mail fraud charges and stealing over $75,000 from the people of Bates County.
A federal grand jury in Kansas City indicted Valerie Jill Berry, 35, of Butler, Mo., this week on six charges of mail fraud for filing false information to state officials.
