Sheriff Pat Kelly attended an Athens County Records Commission meeting on Tuesday but was not directly questioned about missing documents.

The meeting reviewed a records form that was submitted but was in the wrong format.

The next meeting is scheduled for June 13.

The Athens County Prosecutor recently reported that 1,800 files involving criminal documents from 2007-2010 were taken to the landfill in early May. Officials tried to recover the documents but they had already been destroyed.

Kelly said that he was following proper procedure in getting rid of the paperwork.
