Wirt County assessor Deborah Hennen, who used public funds for personal gain, has been reprimanded and fined.

The state Ethics Commission says Hennen admitted to borrowing public money collected from dog license fees.

Hennen said she'd repay the fund at the end of each month, before the money was turned over to the sheriff.

She also acknowledged travel reimbursement discrepancies and her use of public equipment and resources, according to the Ethics Commission.

The commission imposed sanctions totaling $6,250 to Hennen for "misconduct that included using public funds for her own personal use," according to a news release.

Hennen had faced earlier criminal charges as Assessor.

Hennen is running unopposed in the General Election.
