A Jefferson County employee who is the secretary to County Judge Henry “Hank” Wilkins IV and who was arrested Monday on a felony warrant from Michigan was released a short time after being booked in to the Jefferson County Detention Center.

Rachel Cherry, 49, was served with a warrant from Monroe County, Michigan, alleging that she owed more than $60,000 in back child support.

Jefferson County Sheriff’s Maj.Lafayette Woods Jr. said Tuesday that when Michigan authorities were contacted, they discovered that Cherry had been making payments, but for some reason they were not being credited properly. She was released on her own recognizance.
