Former Court Clerk Makes Bail

Larry Morten, the former Glynn County Superior Court Clerk’s bookkeeper who was indicted last week on 70 counts of theft by taking and subsequently turned himself in to Sheriff Neal Jump on Saturday, posted $120,000 bail the same day and was released shortly before 1:00 p.m. Conditions for his release included turning in a current passport, appearing at Superior Court for all scheduled hearings, keeping the Clerk of Superior Court apprised of his current mailing or physical addresses and waving his Fourth Amendment rights to freedom from unreasonable search and seizure. He is also unable to leave the state without permission from a Superior Court judge.
