A Carlisle couple faces federal corruption charges.
Jefferson Township Trustee, 51 year old Frank Mejean and his wife 48 year old Antonnete, who is the Township Clerk, made their first appearances in court Thursday.
The indictment against them alleges that they overpaid themselves thousands of dollars in township funds; that they funneled township money into their plumbing business and overpaying a lawn mowing contract held by Antonnette.
The couple has been released on their own recognizance.
Any further expenditures of Jefferson Township funds will now have to be approved by the chair of the township board.
