Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp would like to warn the citizens of a scam that is going around. If you receive a phone call from someone claiming that you missed jury duty and have to pay a fine or there is an arrest warrant for you, it is a scam. Do not give them any personal information and report it to the Sheriff’s Office immediately.
Scammers are making these calls and using Judge Brad Paisley’s name as well as State Attorney Mike Havera and Bruce Kettelkamp’s names. The legitimate procedure is if you don’t show for jury duty, as required, you will receive a telephone call from the Christian County Circuit Clerk’s Office or the Sheriff’s Office directing you to come to the courthouse for jury duty.
The Sheriff’s Office and States Attorney’s Office do not call and tell people they have warrants. This is a scare tactic designed to frighten people, make them worry, and then divulge personal information to avoid the alleged “fine” or “arrest”.
