Jefferson County Clerk

Ruth Gordon

Clerk's Office Staff

ALERT!A telephone jury scam is ongoing in Jefferson County.  Please do not give any personal information, and do not give any money to someone who calls you and tells you they work for the county, courts, or law enforcement.  Instead, please contact staff of the appropriate agency in person or by calling their listed local number, or make a report to law enforcement.

Jefferson County residents are receiving a telephone call from someone who identifies himself as a Sheriff’s Lieutenant and tells them that Superior Court Judge Keith Harper has signed documents charging them with failure to appear for jury duty on October 3rd and contempt of court. People are told that they need to appear before Judge Harper on October 24th to answer these charges, and told they should make an online payment as an appearance bond via GreenDot MoneyPak.  THIS IS NOT TRUE.  Please do not give or confirm any personal information, and do not make a payment online.  You do not need to appear on October 24th. There was no jury trial held on October 3rd.  This is a phishing scam.  You may call Ruth Gordon, County Clerk at 360-385-9128 for further information.
