Wilkom works as a Booking Clerk at the Orient Road Jail. She has been employed with HCSO since 2018.

“Regardless of one’s employment status with our office, if a crime is committed we will thoroughly investigate and hold them accountable for their actions,” said Sheriff Chad Chronister. “While we understand that this was a private, family matter that unfortunately escalated, we expect all employees of the Sheriff’s Office, whether sworn or civilian personnel, to hold themselves to a higher standard at all times.”
