CAMP VERDE, Ariz. (AP) - The constable for the Verde Valley Justice Court has been suspended after an investigation found he wasn’t depositing payments for services performed.

Yavapai County Superior Court presiding Judge David Mackey announced the suspension of Jay Parkison on Tuesday.

Mackey says an investigation by an independent accountant found that deposits haven’t been made since November 2011.

Mackey says no money was stolen but Parkison failed to perform administrative accounting duties.

Parkison has agreed to pay the costs of hiring the independent accountant and any losses to the county.

Parkison was elected constable in 2010. He retains his administrative duties but cannot serve court documents during his suspension.

The case has been forwarded to the Yavapai County Attorney’s Office to determine whether Parkison should be removed from the job.
