ETOWAH COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Etowah County's personnel director has resigned following felony criminal charges.

We told you earlier this month about Jennifer Taylor and her arrest for computer tampering and identity theft.

Sheriff's investigators say she ran a background check on someone who never filled out a job application.

They said at the time, no employees and no other members of the public were believed to be affected.

Tuesday, the county commission accepted her resignation. She had been on paid leave since her arrest.

County Commission CEO Patrick Simms says the man Taylor originally replaced, Mike Naugher, will hold the position until a permanent replacement can be found.
